National Lottery Heritage Fund announces Emergency Funding

Heritage Emergency Fund announced!

07 April 2020

The National Lottery Heritage Fund has announced a Heritage Emergency Fund of £50 million to support the heritage sector as an immediate response to the COVID-19 outbreak.  The UK-wide fund will address immediate pressures over the next three-six months for those organisations most in need.

The £50 million fund will be available for grants between £3,000 and £50,000.

Organisations which have received funding in the past or 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
