A second round of the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage is now open. This fund is part of the rescue package announced by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to safeguard cultural and heritage organisations across England from the continuing economic impact of COVID-19.
This latest round of funding looks forward to next spring and early summer when it is expected that cultural organisations will be able to operate with fewer restrictions. Over £300 million of grants will be available, covering the period April-June 2021, to support cultural organisations with the costs they will face as they welcome back visitors and customers.
Historic England are working in partnership with the National Lottery Heritage Fund to distribute £36 million of this Government funding to organisations in England, based on criteria set by DCMS. This second round will offer grants of between £10,000 and £3 million to support organisations to make the transition towards full reopening. The fund will be open for applications from Thursday 7 January 2021 and organisations can apply any time from then until Tuesday 26 January 2021.
