This second round will offer grants of between £10,000 and £3m to support organisations to make the transition towards full reopening.
The fund is looking forward to Spring and early summer 2021 when it is expected that cultural organisations will be able to operate with fewer restrictions.
The fund will support organisations to transition from the challenging months of lockdowns and social distancing to resume business activity and welcome visitors back to the country’s diverse heritage sites. You can bid for grants to support the costs you face as you transition towards full reopening.
This funding is only available for those organisations who need support to return to sustainability, and who have a credible and cost efficient Business Action Plan to do so.
Support Webinars for applicants are being held on Wednesday 13 January 2021 3pm to 4pm or Thursday 14 January 2021 6pm to 7pm
You can book either of them here: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/culture-recovery-heritage-fund
They will also be publishing full recordings of the webinars for those who were unable to attend.
