Welcome to Arts Council National Lottery Project Grants

At the Arts Council we want to support exciting
and diverse work that brings great art and
culture to people across the country
Arts Council National Lottery Project Grants
is our funding programme for arts, museums
and libraries projects
Project Grants are an opportunity for artists,
cultural practitioners and organisations to
work in new ways and to help people across
England to engage with their work
We support projects in
Visual arts
and Combined arts
including Festival and Carnivals
Libraries and Museums can also apply for arts
and Accredited museums can apply for projects
that help people engage with their collections
or their work
Across these disciplines we’re also keen to
see how you could use Creative media to produce
and deliver your work
Funding for Project Grants comes from the
National Lottery and grants typically range
from £1,000 to £100,000
It’s important that your application shows
how people will be able to experience or get
involved with your project and how they’ll
benefit from it – we call this, public engagement,
and it’s at the heart of Project Grants
We have lots of guidance on our website that
will help you decide if this is the most suitable
funding programme for you
As well as online resources to help you make
your application as strong as it can be
Find this, and access to our online application
portal at artscouncil.org.uk/projectgrants
So, what happens once you’ve made an application?
We’ll let you know whether it’s been successful within six weeks
if you have applied for £15,000 or less
and twelve weeks for applications over £15,000
Got a question? Whether it’s before, during, or after making an application
don’t hesitate to get in touch
We’re here to help
