In response to the COVID-19 crisis the National Lottery Heritage Fund have released information regarding a £50M Heritage Emergency Fund which will hopefully be of great benefit to some of our projects and partners during these challenging times.
A quick summary of the fund is as follows:
The £50m fund will be available for grants of between £3,000 and £50,000.
It is available to organisations across the full breadth of heritage, including historic sites, industrial and maritime heritage, museums, libraries and archives, parks and gardens, landscapes and nature.
Organisations which have received funding in the past and are either a current grantee, or still under contract following a previous grant, can apply.
Priority will be given where:
• there is limited or no access to other sources of support
• where heritage is most at risk
• where an organisation is at risk of severe financial crisis due to COVID-19
