Funding: Arts Council National Lottery Project Grants

Closing Date

Project Grants are the Arts Council's new open access programme for arts, museums and libraries projects, funded by the National Lottery. The fund will support thousands of individual artists, community and cultural organisations.

To make life easier, the process starts with a quiz. This quiz can help you think about different aspects of your project and get you ready to begin your application. Each question focuses on a different aspect of what you want to do, and offers guidance on how you can make a strong application.
