Museum Estate & Development Fund (MEND) Round 4 North Area Briefing Webinar

Logo for Arts Council England

The MEND fund from Arts Council England (ACE) is for capital expenditure grants from £50,000 to £5 million to undertake vital infrastructure and urgent maintenance backlog work to non-national Accredited museums. This is an open-access capital fund for non-national Accredited museums and/or local authorities who are responsible for maintenance of non-national Accredited museum buildings to apply for funding to undertake vital infrastructure and urgent maintenance backlogs which are beyond the scope of day-to-day maintenance budgets.

Expressions of Interest (EOI) open on 4th March, the deadline is 18th April 2024. To follow on from the national ACE webinar held on 20th February, this session is aimed at organisations based in the North of England that are submitting an EOI. It is an opportunity to hear from Katharine Boardman, Relationship Manager, Museums at ACE who will be sharing information on the programme, key things to think about for your application, followed by Q&A.

If you didn’t attend the national ACE webinar, the slide deck and FAQs will soon be available here. We advise you to read these before attending the session on 12h March as it may answer some of your questions.

This session is for museums that intend to apply to the MEND fund
