Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage
The Government's £1.57billion 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 DCMS, to distribute the heritage portion of this funding to organisations in England – the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage.
Third round of funding
£40million is available through this third round of funding. It 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.
The first set of awards totalling £1.7million were announced on 19 November 2021 – download these from this page. Further awards will be announced in the coming months.
