New COVID-19 recovery funding for organisations and individuals in Northern Ireland
Funding announced for Heritage Projects
Two funding strands – part of the Department for Communities’ wider Covid Recovery Programme – are available to support organisations and individuals working in the heritage sector in Northern Ireland.
This funding is being distributed by the Heritage Fund following criteria set by the Department for Communities.
The Covid Recovery Programme for Heritage Organisations aims to reduce or remove heritage organisations’ financial operating deficits which have arisen as a result of the pandemic in the 2021-2022 financial year.
Grants from £2,000 up to £50,000 are available. In exceptional circumstances, grants of over £50,000 are also available.
The funding is open to not-for-profit heritage organisations operating in Northern Ireland. Organisations that work with all types of heritage are eligible to apply – from built to natural heritage, and those that preserve objects, stories or species.
Organisations have from Friday 17 December 2021 until noon on Friday 21 January 2022 to apply.
Refer to the full guidance for more information.
