The National Lottery Heritage Fund has put together a £50 million fund to support the heritage sector as an immediate response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The £50m fund will be available for grants of between £3,000 and £50,000.

It is available to organisations across the full breadth of heritage, including historic sites, industrial and maritime heritage, museums, libraries and archives, parks and gardens, landscapes and nature.

Organisations which have received funding in the past or are either a current grantee, or still under contract following a previous grant, can apply.

Priority will be given where:

there is limited or no access to other sources of support
where heritage is most at risk
where an organisation is at risk of severe financial crisis due to COVID-19
These are just the first steps in Heritage Fund’s response to the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. More details will be released over time.
