Heritage Emergency Fund

We are providing a package of support for the heritage sector as a response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

This includes increased advice and support, longer-term skills and capacity building initiatives, and a £50 million Heritage Emergency Fund to provide emergency funding for those most in need.

We are also currently developing longer-term support and more information on this will be available soon.

The Heritage Emergency Fund is accepting applications for funding from £3,000 to £50,000. The application form will be available from Wednesday 15 April and you will be able to apply until 30 June 2020.

To apply for the Heritage Emergency Fund, you must be:

  • a not-for-profit organisation
  • a current or previous recipient of a grant directly from us
  • an owner, manager or representative of heritage, or be able to show you have delivered participatory heritage activity

You must meet all three criteria above to apply for funding through the Heritage Emergency Fund. If you do not meet these criteria, you may be eligible for other support as we develop our longer-term strategic support or other initiatives.
