Grants to support the development of modern, attractive facilities and services in museums, archives and libraries across Wales.

Following the success of the Community Learning Libraries grant scheme, we have opened our capital development grant scheme to museums and archives. We want museums, archives and libraries in Wales to be modern, attractive and welcoming to all. This scheme builds on the strategic aims of Taking Wales Forward and the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act.


We welcome applications for two levels of grants:
  • band a - grants of up to £120,000 to improve the external appearance and environment, quality of collections care, visitor experience and improve long term sustainability.
  • band b - grants of up to £300,000 for larger strategic projects.
For full details please see the Information for Applicants.


Applications should be submitted by 13 March 2017.
