The Culture Recovery Fund: Grants programme will focus on supporting cultural organisations affected by the Covid-19 crisis that are at risk of no longer trading viably by the end of this financial year and that are considered to be of international or national cultural significance, or that contribute to Government’s levelling-up agenda.
The criteria for this fund have been set by Government, and the grants will be administered, awarded and monitored by the Arts Council on behalf of the DCMS. Grants of between £50,000 and £3 million will be awarded from a budget of up to £500 million.
Accredited museums (including those formally Working Towards Accreditation) are eligible (subject to meeting other relevant eligibility criteria).
There are two rounds of funding:
- Round One: Opens 12pm (midday), Monday 10 August and closes at 12pm (midday), Friday 21 August
- Round Two: Opens 4pm, Friday 21 August and closes on 12pm (midday), Friday 4 September at 12pm
