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. The fund re-opened for applications on 15th April 2020.

[UPDATE 2 JUNE 2020] Larger grants now available from the Heritage Emergency Fund
The Heritage Emergency Fund is now welcoming applications for larger grants to cover emergency costs during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.  The new level of Heritage Emergency Fund grants are worth £50,000-£250,000. Using funding made possible by The National Lottery, these grants are available to all past and current National Lottery Heritage Fund grantees and aims to help organisations that manage a heritage asset that is at risk over the next 4 months.  

The new grants are in addition to the existing £3,000-£50,000 Heritage Emergency Fund grants which were launched in mid-April as the crisis began to unfold.  They intend these larger grants to help organisations in the heritage sector address immediate risks, become more stable and work towards longer-term recovery after the crisis.
