Emergency Response Support webinars

I have three webinars coming up about the new Arts Council England Culture Recovery Fund: Emergency Resource Support (ERS)

More information about the fund is here

There are two new rounds of Culture Recovery Fund

  • Emergency Resource Support (ERS)
  • Continuity Support (many are calling this CRF3)

ERS is for organisations who ‘are able to demonstrate, via cashflow forecast, they are at risk of ceasing to trade viably within 12 weeks of the point of application. 

It is a rolling fund of £20 mill and you can make an application any time between now and 30th September.

It is a two stage process.

  1. A ‘permission to apply’ form must be submitted
  2. Once you have permission you have 5 days to make your application

It is not first come first serve and if your application is turned down you cannot apply again so timing is crucial. You do however, have the opportunity to resubmit your ‘permission to apply’ if you are turned down at that stage.

And all we know about the Culture Recovery Fund Continuity Support fund so far is this…

“Continuity Support will be open to organsations that have previously received Culture Recovery Fund grants helping them prepare to return to full capacity and build financially sustainable futures. 

We will publish further information about this programme later in the summer..”
