Arts Council: Culture Recovery Fund Launch

This fund offers financial support for cultural organisations that were financially stable before Covid-19, but are now at imminent risk of failure.

Total fund - Up to £500 million
Grant range - Minimum of £50,000 up to a maximum of £3 million

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.

Key dates

Please note, whilst there are two rounds for this fund, we expect to allocate approximately 75% of the overall budget to the first round. If you have an application ready in time for Round 1, we strongly encourage you to apply to this round.
