Arts Council England have announced the first round of grants from the £500 million Culture Recovery Fund. This fund offers financial support for cultural organisations that were financially stable before Covid-19, but are now at imminent risk of failure.
Grants will range from £50,000 up to £3 million. Applications for the first round of funding open at 12pm on Monday 10 August and close at 12pm on Friday 21 August 2020.
This funding is available to:
Cultural organisations (both profit and not for profit) based in England that are properly constituted and are registered at Companies House and/or Charity Commission, and are able to produce at least one year’s full independently certified or audited financial statements.
Local Authorities, Universities and other Public Sector bodies who run or maintain cultural services can also apply.
For this programme, we define ‘cultural’ as sitting within the remit of Arts Council England, however Library services are not eligible to apply.
