Museum Estate and Devt Fund

Local and regional accredited museums and local authorities in England will be able to apply for a share of £23.8 million in funding to enable them to undertake vital infrastructure and urgent maintenance backlog work which is beyond the scope of day-to-day maintenance budgets.

The funding will support capital expenditure from £50,000 to £5 million for work that improves their core infrastructure, and reduces the immediate risks to buildings, visitors, staff and collections.

Up to 10 per cent of the total project costs must come from other sources.

Partnership applications are welcome.

The funding is made available through the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s Museum Estate and Development Fund, and administered by Arts Council England.

Expressions of Interest open at 9am on the 4th March 2024.
