The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) takes a flexible approach to Partnership Funding. Applications made through the Mains Grant or Revenue programmes can receive up to 90 per cent. HLF funding for projects up to £100,000 and 75 per cent. for projects over that amount. Through these programmes in Northern Ireland the Heritage Lottery Fund is not aware of any projects which have received HLF awards failing because of applicants' inability to secure partnership funding.
