Recovery grants of up to £3m offered to heritage organisations

by Stephen Delahunty

Heritage organisations are being invited to apply for grants of up to £3m in the latest round of funding from the government’s £1.6bn Culture Recovery Fund.

Up to £300m is available in the second tranche of funds, which can be used to help organisations recover from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

It is open to heritage organisations managing a heritage site or visitor attraction, private owners of a heritage site, venue or attraction, and organisations managing, maintaining or caring for culturally significant assets or collections.

The aim of this phase of funding is to help organisations transition from the current lockdown into spring and early summer, when the government expects heritage organisations will be able to operate with fewer restrictions. 

Organisations can use the funding to support their operations and begin a programme of heritage activity in April.

The funding aims to ensure that by the end of June, organisations will be operating on a viable and sustainable basis.
