Recovery and Development Grants 2022/23

Recovery and Development Grants 2022/23

As in the previous two years, and reflecting the challenges which museums in the North East continue to face as they emerge from the pandemic and face the impact of current fuel and wider cost rises, Museum Development North East are continuing to offer an enhanced 'Recovery and Development' Grant Scheme in 2022/23.

Funded by Arts Council England (ACE), the scheme is offering grants from £500 to £10,000. In line with ACE’s strategic priorities, it will support development and operational agendas for museums, with a key emphasis on inclusion/relevance and sustainability/environmental agendas and aims to help museums remain a key part of the life of all communities in the region.

About the Grants

Two levels of funding are available:

  • Grants from £500 to £5000 do not require match funding
  • Grants of £5000 - £10,000 require 10% match funding

Grants are open to all non NPO Accredited/Working Towards Accreditation Museums (including non-lead members of NPO consortia).
