Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage

Grants of between £10,000 and £3 million are available  for cultural and heritage organisations in England that were financially stable before the coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis but are now at imminent risk of failure.

The funding will support organisations across the heritage ecosystem that were financially sustainable before COVID-19, have exhausted all other financing options, and are now at risk of failure.

The programme will support organisations across the heritage ecosystem to ensure that by 31 March 2021, successful applicants can reopen or, if reopening under social distancing is not permissible or does not represent a value for money approach, to operate on a sustainable and cost-efficient basis so that they are able to reopen at a later date.

It is anticipated that there will be one application round which will run from noon on 30 July until noon on 17 August 2020.
