Arts Council England (ACE) has announced its new Capital Investment Fund.
This new fund, which replaces the former Small and Large Capital Grants programmes, aims to help ACE build a ‘fit for the future’ cultural sector which gives more people the opportunity to enjoy high-quality cultural experiences.
Museums can apply to Arts Council England for museum capital projects for the first time – previously it was just for arts activity. https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/get-funding/capital
ACE will invest in capital expenditure that supports cultural organisations to adjust buildings and equipment so that they can:
- operate safely post-pandemic
- improve access
- seize on technological opportunities
- and reduce environmental impact
Making an application:
Cultural organisations can apply for grants between £100,000 and £750,000 for activities taking place between April 2022 and March 2025.
You’ll need to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) first.
You can find out more about the programme and take a look at the guidance for applicants and FAQs on the ACE website.
The online Expression of Interest form will be open on Grantium between 12 noon on Tuesday 5 October 2021 and 12 noon on Tuesday 26 October 2021.
The online application form will open on Grantium between 12 noon on Wednesday 10 November 2021 and 12 noon on Monday 13 December 2021.
