Deadline: 17th August
Heritage organisations in England that are at risk of no longer trading viably this financial year can apply now for grants of between £10,000 and £3 million to cover any reasonable costs that helps them recover and become viable.
The funding aims to help organisations adapt and recover; re-open and follow public health guidelines; or temporarily scale back.
Organisations should only apply for this funding if they are able to meet all of the essential criteria:
- They must have been financially viable before COVID-19 (March 2020)
- They are at risk of no longer trading viably by the end of this financial year
- They can demonstrate that they have exhausted all other financing options. For example, applying for other emergency funds, reducing costs, diversifying income streams or taking advantage of government easements
- They have a clear plan towards future financial viability.
The funding must be spent by 31 March 2021 and there will be one application round.
