MDEM / Art Fund Covid-19 Recovery Grants
A reminder that the deadline to apply for the second round of Recovery Grant funding is Friday 9th October.
Thanks to fantastic Art Fund investment we were able to open a new MDEM / Art Fund grant fund to Accredited Museums (and those Working Towards Accreditation) in East Midlands. Museums are able to apply for grants up to £10,000 to support effective reopening, meeting audience needs, and developing a sustainable offer in response to the crisis.
Application forms are available here and are being assessed in two rounds – the first round closed on Friday 15th August, and the second round will close on Friday 9th October. Eligible museums will be those that have not received emergency funding to date from e.g. National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic England, Arts Council England etc. Museums cannot apply for capital project costs and revenue costs such as salaries and general running costs.
Our Small Grants (up to £1500) and Collections Access grants (up to £1000) are still available as well as this new recovery grant fund. You can apply to these funds at any time and grants are assessed monthly.
