Mid Sussex MP welcomes new organisation grant applications
Mims Davies, MP for Mid Sussex, has highlighted the reopening of applications for national lottery grants for heritage organisations.
This follows the launch of the £50million heritage emergency fund last April,
The National Lottery is asking heritage organisations to focus on a few high-priority outcomes that will strengthen the sector and help drive the UK’s wider recovery from Covid-19.
These priority outcomes include boosting local economies, encouraging and sustaining jobs and opportunities, supporting wellbeing, and ensuring heritage play a part in creating better places to live, work and visit.
Ms Davies said: “For many heritage organisations, the last year has been the most challenging ever faced.
“I know that many organisations and projects across the region feel precarious and need support.
“Hats off again to the National Lottery team.
“As the former charities minister, I know how important it is to local organisations to have the support and how much the National Lottery have gone out of their way to help communities. They continue to work with charities across the country and have been a crucial component during this pandemic.”
