Funding for the Arts, Culture and Heritage sectors

Following the announcement that £29m has been allocated by the Executive to provide much needed support for the culture, language, arts and heritage sectors impacted by the coronavirus pandemic the Department for Communities is currently working on the final stages of the funding schemes.

£3m of this funding will be distributed immediately to individual artists through an existing programme administered by the Arts Council.

We continue to engage with partners across central and local government, Arm’s Length bodies and sectoral representatives to ensure that funding is distributed fairly and quickly and further announcements about funding will be made in the coming weeks.
