Emergency Heritage Grant

April 29, 2020 12:40 PM

Historic England's Covid-19 Emergency Response Fund extends a safety net to small heritage organisations at this challenging time.

The grants available will help organisations, voluntary groups and self-employed contractors survive the immediate challenges posed by the pandemic, and to prepare for recovery.

Apply for funding

Applicants are invited to apply for grants of up to £25,000 to address financial difficulties arising from Coronavirus. Grants of up to £50,000 are also available for projects and activities that reduce risks to heritage by providing information, resources and skills.

The deadline for applications is midnight on Sunday 3 May 2020 and the funding for successful applications will be awarded from mid-May.

We are providing a package of support for the heritage sector as a response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

This includes increased advice and support, longer-term skills and capacity building initiatives, and a £50 million Heritage Emergency Fund to provide emergency funding for those most in need.

We are also currently developing longer-term support and more information on this will be available soon.

The Heritage Emergency Fund is accepting applications for funding from £3,000 to £50,000. The application form will be available from Wednesday 15 April and you will be able to apply until 30 June 2020.

We are working closely with partners and stakeholders and will review this timescale in line with need and demand. We expect high demand for this fund and will prioritise funding against the criteria list below.
