Culture Recovery Fund: More support for arts and culture
£58.8 million of capital investment was recently (11 December 2020) announced, supporting arts and heritage organisations across the country. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has also announced £165 million in repayable finance offers.
With these awards, the Culture Recovery Fund marks its £1 billion milestone, with £654 million being invested in arts and cultural organisations. There's also a further round of support on the way, as DCMS announces new funding rounds with a further £400 million available in grants and loans.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden, recently said:
“This government promised it would be here for culture and today’s announcement is proof we’ve kept our word. The £1 billion invested so far through the Culture Recovery Fund has protected tens of thousands of jobs at cultural organisations across the UK, with more support still to come through a second round of applications. Today we’re extending a huge helping hand to the crown jewels of UK culture - so that they can continue to inspire future generations all around the world.”
