New Round of Museum Estate and Development Fund Open to Applications
Grants available to non-national Accredited museums to undertake vital infrastructure and urgent maintenance backlogs which are beyond the scope of day-to-day maintenance budgets.
Arts Council England (ACE), supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), is providing this open-access capital fund targeted at non-national Accredited museums and local authorities based in England to apply for funding to undertake vital infrastructure and urgent maintenance backlogs which are beyond the scope of day-to-day maintenance budgets.
The impacts ACE expect this fund to achieve are that:
- Museums across England improve their core infrastructure by tackling their maintenance backlogs
- Museums across England reduce the immediate risks to buildings, visitors, staff and collections due to improved core infrastructure.
Round three of the fund is now open to applications.
Applications will be accepted from:
- Non-national Accredited museums based in England, and/or
- Local authorities based in England who are responsible for maintenance of non-national Accredited museum buildings.
A total amount of £22.6 million is available for round three.
Grants of between £50,000 and £5 million will be awarded.
Expressions of interest must be submitted by the deadline of 21 April 2024 (midday).
