£50,000-£250,000 Covid-19 grants now available from National Lottery Heritage Fund
The National Lottery Heritage Fund is now welcoming applications for larger grants to cover emergency costs during the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic.
Applications open on Thursday 21 May and close on Tuesday 30 June this year.
The Heritage Emergency Fund can be used for both immediate emergency actions and to help organisations in the heritage sector begin to think about recovery.
The new grants are available to cover essential costs for up to four months, helping to address immediate risks, and allowing organisations to become more stable and work towards longer-term recovery after the crisis.
The money can be used, for example, for mothballing, reconfiguring business plans or covering essential costs such as site security or maintaining natural habitats.
Grants can also contribute towards increasing digital activities during this period, testing new activities that will help with recovery, and reviewing and revising strategic and operating plans.
