£50 million fund

The National Lottery Heritage Fund has put together a £50 million fund to support the heritage sector as an immediate response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The UK-wide fund - money raised from The National Lottery - will address immediate pressures over the next three to six months for those organisations most in need. It will be open for applications within the next few days.

The £50 million fund will be available for grants of between £3,000 and £50,000. It's 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 or are either a current grantee, or still under contract following a previous grant, can apply.

It will continue to support more than 2,500 projects that it's already committed to - an investment of more than £1billion.

Take a look at more detail on the fund as well as other ways it is supporting the sector.
