Small Grants 2023-24

MDY’s Small Grant scheme for 2023-24 is now open for applications.

If you have a small project that requires some funding, or an idea you would like to test out, this is the place for you!


How much can we apply for?

Grants of up to £3,000 are available.

Grant requests under £1,000 do not require match funding. Grants over £1,000 require a minimum of 20% cash contribution.


What are the deadlines?

Due to forthcoming changes in how Museum Development is administered, we are encouraging early applications this year.

Grants will remain available on a rolling basis until the available grant budget is fully committed, which we expect to be by October.

All grant claims are required by 31st January 2024.


What should I do to start an application?

For more information, please see the detailed Grant Guidance here.

Before making an application, please speak to your Museum Development Officer. All details are in the Grant Guidance.
