National Lottery Project Grants
Arts Council National Lottery Project Grants is our open-access funding programme for arts, museums and libraries projects. It is
always open, and has a quick turnaround, so we can respond to peoples’ good ideas. We also aim to broadly reflect the diversity of
contemporary England through the grants we make.
Project Grants (for short) helps us to achieve our mission, Great art and culture for everyone. It supports a broad range of not-for-profit projects that create and sustain quality work and help people across England to engage with arts and culture.
The programme also supports development by allowing artists, cultural practitioners and organisations to work in new ways and to get
their work out to new audiences.
• Applications must meet the programme’s four criteria: Quality, Public engagement, Finance and Management.
The application form will ask you to describe your project using these criteria
• We can make grants between £1,000 and £100,000. This guidance is only for applicants asking for £15,000 or less
• At least 10% of the total funding for your project must come from sources other than the Arts Council
• We can support projects that last up to a maximum of three years
