Grants to support Scotland’s historic environment sector to recover from the impacts of COVID-19
About the Historic Environment Recovery Fund
The £2.6m Historic Environment Recovery Fund will support Scotland’s historic environment sector to recover from the impacts of COVID-19. The fund aims to support organisations to remain solvent, safeguard jobs and training opportunities and ensure that historic buildings and sites can re-open to the public. It will also invest in urgent repairs and maintenance, helping to generate work for specialist contractors and the wider heritage economy.
Funding for the Historic Environment Recovery Fund comes from the £97 million UK Government consequentials to help Scotland’s culture and heritage sectors weather the effects of COVID-19. Historic Environment Scotland is administering this fund on behalf of Scottish Government.
The Historic Environment Recovery Fund is now open. They are accepting between 12 October and 2 November. Please read the full guidance here if you are interested in applying.
