How we'll invest in 2018-22

We have set a budget of £622 million per year across Lottery and grant in aid (from Government) for our three main funding streams: the National Portfolio, Grants for Arts and Culture, and strategic funds.

We developed our new investment plans following our consultation with the sector.

By announcing our proposed budgets now, we want to give the arts and culture sector the chance to consider the full range of funding opportunities available, ahead of the National Portfolio application portal opening on 26 October.
