The National Lottery Heritage Fund has put together a £50million fund to support the heritage sector as an immediate response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The UK-wide fund – money raised from The National Lottery – will address immediate pressures over the next three-six months for those organisations most in need. It will be open for applications within the next few days.
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
