National Lottery Project Grants is returning!

On 22 July Arts Council England Project grants will be open again for applications, with a budget of £59.8 million available until April 2021.

After a brief closure of the fund in the immediate aftermath of the Covid-19 crisis, we are pleased to say that National Lottery Project Grants will be back later in July.

We’re making improvements to make the fund more responsive to the needs of smaller independent organisations and individual practitioners during Covid-19.

We have prioritised reopening this programme to help fund independent organisations, creative practitioners and freelancers as quickly as possible.

We’ll publish updated guidance for the programme by mid-July.
