The National Lottery Heritage Fund, in partnership with Historic England, is helping the heritage sector kickstart its recovery through the £92m Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage.
The fund has been created to support organisations across the heritage sector that were financially sustainable before the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, have exhausted all other financing options, and are now at risk of failure.
The money is being distributed on behalf of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS).
The Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage is open for applications now for organisations in England, including:
• not for profit organisations and other public sector bodies that manage heritage sites, venues or attractions
• private owners of heritage sites, venues or attractions that are normally open to the public 28 days a year or more
• for profit businesses that are a vital part of the heritage ecosystem and who generate the largest portion of their income from heritage work, this includes conservators, contractors, specialists and suppliers
• organisations that manage culturally significant assets or collections or provide significant support to the heritage sector
All you need to know about applying is in the guidance on The National Lottery Heritage Fund's website.
You do not need to be a previous grantee of The National Lottery Heritage Fund to apply for this money. And if you received funding through the Heritage Emergency Fund, you can still apply for the Culture Recovery Fund.
Don’t miss out on this heritage recovery funding – the deadline to apply is midday Monday 17 August.
