Listed Places of Worship Grant extended to 2021

It has been confirmed that the Government has extended funding for the Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme (LPWGS) scheme until 31st March 2021.

The LPWGS website has updated its FAQs with information regarding the extension. Under the question: What is the deadline / time limit for a claim to be submitted? The website states that: “The scheme will only accept invoices up to 12 months from the date of issue. The Government has confirmed the funding available for the scheme until 31st March 2021.”

Under the LPWGS, listed buildings that are used as places of worship and that meet certain conditions have benefited from a matching grant to refund VAT spent on approved repairs and maintenance.
