The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the National Trust have joined forces to launch the Future Parks Accelerator (FPA). The FPA is a UK-wide £10 million strategic initiative to enable up to eight local authorities and communities to develop and implement bold and innovative funding and management solutions for all their green spaces across their place.
The initiative will run over two years and combine £5m in HLF grant funding with £5m in value of National Trust expertise. It is now open for expressions of interest, with a deadline of midday on Monday 19th November.
A number of places will then be invited to submit a full application later this year with decisions on which places will receive support made in February 2019.
