Programme Grants

Many of our development programmes have targeted grant support available alongside specific training and consultancy support. See the relevant programme information for details.

Is it for you?

Eligibility: Only Accredited museums are eligible for support (and those that are listed with Arts Council as ‘Working Towards Accreditation’)

Match Funding: Applicants must demonstrate a minimum 10% match funding towards the total project costs (this can be in volunteer-time where appropriate).

When is the deadline? Museums can apply at any time between 1 April 2021 and 31 January 2022. Grants are assessed at the end of each month by the MDEM grant panel and outcomes of applications communicated to museums within the first two weeks of the following month.
