Larger Grants Now Available Through Heritage Emergency Fund

| Return|

Past and current National Lottery Heritage Fund grantees can apply now for emergency grants of between £50,000 and £250,000 to cover essential costs for up to four months. This funding is part of the £50 million Heritage Lottery Fund which launched in mid April with smaller grants of between £3,000 and £50,000. (Applications are still being accepted for the smaller grants until 30 June.)

The funding aims to help organisations that manage a heritage asset that is at risk over the next four months. This can include immediate costs, as well as costs to help organisations look towards longer-term recovery. Support will focus on heritage that has been significantly funded in the past, and that can demonstrate the vital contribution it has made to local communities.

Commenting, The National Lottery Heritage Fund CEO Ros Kerslake said:

“The coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has particularly damaging effect on the heritage sector, just as many attractions would be welcoming paying visitors from home and overseas. We are continuing to listen to heritage organisations and adapt our response to their needs, which is why we have brought in this higher level of funding.

“Although we may not be able to fund everything, we do encourage organisations to get in touch and apply for funding.

“Heritage is incredibly valuable for people, communities and the economy. We want to support organisations to actively deal with immediate risks, become more stable and work towards longer term recovery.”

Applications will be accepted from 21 May to 30 June 2020.
