Lottery shortfall forces ACE to cut 2018-22 budget by £156m

£39m less per year is available as Arts Council England announces new funding streams and a new name for Grants for the Arts.

https://www.artsprofessional.co.uk/news/lottery-shortfall-forces-ac...

Arts Council England has been forced to cut its budget for 2018-22 by £156m and completely restructure several funding streams following a collapse in Lottery sales.

Whilst the annual £409m earmarked for National Portfolio Organisations (NPOs) remains untouched, the national funder’s plans to spend £212.5m a year on project funding and strategic funds have been re-assessed.

Project funding will increase from £87.5m to £97.3m a year, but be broader in scope to permit a wider range of applications. Strategic funding will fall from £125m to £72.2m annually. With £4m a year for contingency funding, this translates into an annual fall of £39m.

ACE has also announced name changes for both funds, and a new funding stream of small grants for individual artists.
