Fund description:

The Arts Council England has launched a new grants programme to support the cultural sector. The new Capital Investment Programme replaces the former Small and Large Capital Grants programmes.

The grants are for capital expenditure that enables cultural organisations to make changes to their buildings and equipment so that they can:

  • operate safely post-pandemic
  • improve access
  • seize on technological opportunities
  • reduce environmental impact

Not-for-profit cultural organisations based in England can apply for between £100,000 – £750,000 for activities taking place between April 2022 and March 2025. For grants between £100,000 and £250,000 you will need to have 5% match funding; for grants above £250,000 you will need to have 10% match funding.
