£90 million available from ACE to National Portfolio Organisations (NPOs).

All organisations within the Arts Council’s 2018-22 National Portfolio of Organisations (including Bands 1-3, and Sector Support Organisations) are eligible to apply.

How can this money be used? As yet, ACE are unsure as it is still unsure what Government support of the sector might be.

BUT,  ACE state 'We will expect NPOs who benefit from any such funding to show how they will support the freelance creative practitioners on whom they rely.'

When do applications open? As soon as possible buy ACE will let NPOs know.
