Historic Environment Scotland have launched a £2.6m Historic Environment Recovery Fund which is due to open for applications on 12 October 2020.
The fund aims to support Scotland’s historic environment sector to recover from the impacts of COVID-19, enabling
organisations to remain solvent,
safeguard jobs and training opportunities and ensure that historic buildings and sites can reopen to the public. It will also invest in urgent repairs and maintenance, helping to generate work for specialist contractors and the wider heritage economy.
Grants of between £10k and £100k will be available for costs to be incurred before 31 March 2021 under the following two funding streams:
Stream 1: Re-opening Historic Buildings and Sites
Stream 2: Sector Resilience and Recovery
The Historic Environment Recovery Fund is part of the Scottish Government’s £97 million package of targeted funding to support Scotland’s culture and heritage sectors through the impacts of COVID-19.
Applications will be open between 12 October and 2 November 2020. Further information can be found on the Historic Environment Scotland website.
