National Heritage Memorial Fund’s COVID-19 Response Fund

The National Heritage Memorial Fund (NHMF) was founded in 1980 as the fund of last resort for outstanding nationally important heritage that is at risk. Over the past four decades over 1,300 heritage treasures have been saved for the nation.

In response to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, earlier this year NHMF’s £40million fund to support nationally important heritage at risk opened. This UK-wide fund includes the Cultural Assets Fund, a specific allocation of £20m from DCMS for England, alongside NHMF’s own £20m allocation available to organisations across the UK.

Organisations based in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland which own or manage nationally important heritage assets at risk due to the impacts of the pandemic are particularly encouraged to contact for advice.

The fund is available across 2021/22 and 2022/23. The mandatory first step in making an application is to submit an Expression of Interest form.
