Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage

The Government's Culture Recovery Fund rescue package, launched in July 2020, is designed to safeguard cultural organisations from the economic impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

The Heritage Fund is working in partnership with Historic England, based on criteria set by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), to distribute the heritage portion of this funding to organisations in England. This is called the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage.

The awards from a first round of funding were announced in October–November 2020. The awards from a second round of funding were announced in April 2021. 

Third round of funding

This third round of funding is being distributed between two strands, based on the level of demand:

  • Strand One: Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage: Emergency Resource Support – for organisations that were in severe need and had not yet received support from the Culture Recovery Fund.
  • Strand Two: Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage: Continuity Support – for organisations that were in need and had already received support from the Culture Recovery Fund.

In December 2021, it was announced that £15.5million had been awarded to 138 organisations across England.

The final awards were announced in March 2022, and you can download the full list of organisations receiving awards from this page.
