National Lottery Project Grants provides funding to individuals and organisations for time-limited arts, library and museums projects.
We’ve refreshed the fund to help us deliver our new strategy, Let’s Create. Made possible thanks to income from National Lottery players, the fund will continue to support individual artists, community and cultural organisations across the country with grants between £1,000 and £100,000 and it will still be open for you to submit an application at any time.
We’ve published the new guidance for applicants so that you can familiarise yourself with the refreshed fund and are ready to get started when the application portal opens on 22 November.
What are the changes?
We want to support more ambitious activity, more quickly. So from 22 November, you’ll be able to apply for up to £30,000 and get your decision within 8 weeks. If you’re applying for over £30,000 you’ll get a decision within 12 weeks.
We’re also refreshing the application form and eligibility criteria to help us deliver the three Outcomes and four Investment Principles set out in Let’s Create.
National Lottery Project Grants is for everyone and we want to support more individual creative and cultural practitioners. There’ll be new resources on our website to help you make your application and we’ll be targeting some of our advice giving to those who may not have worked with us before, or who are at the start of their career.
We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.
Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
