The Arts Council England Small Capital Grants scheme has reopened for applications. Grants of between £100,000 and £499,999 are available to support organisations to be more resilient by having the right buildings and equipment available to deliver their work, and to increase their environmental performance and reduce carbon emissions.
Over the period 2015-18 priority will be given to the consolidation and improvement of existing arts infrastructure, rather than investing in significant expansion or new buildings. The fund is open to National Portfolio Organisations. Organisations that are not in receipt of National portfolio funding from, can apply if they are properly constituted as an organisation and their Arts Council area office agrees in writing beforehand.
The Arts Council will fund up to 85% of the project costs (often much less) and the applicant needs to have matched funding in place.

Deadline: 9 March 2017
