Find out about the grants awarded to support the recovery of Scotland’s historic environment sector
The Historic Environment Recovery Fund is now closed.
Over £1.9 million has been awarded to over 40 organisations across the country to help support the recovery of Scotland’s historic environment sector from the impacts of COVID-19 as part of the Historic Environment Recovery Fund.
The Historic Environment Recovery Fund was launched to support Scotland’s historic environment sector to recover from the impacts of COVID-19. The fund aims to support organisations to remain solvent, safeguard jobs and training opportunities and ensure that historic buildings and sites can re-open to the public. It will also invest in urgent repairs and maintenance, helping to generate work for specialist contractors and the wider heritage economy.
Historic Environment Scotland is administering this fund on behalf of Scottish Government.
