About the Individuals Emergency Resilience Programme
The Individuals Emergency Resilience Programme is the latest emergency fund administered by the Arts Council (ACNI), on behalf of the Department for Communities, in response to the Covid-19 crisis.

It is a £3.25 million programme of support, providing grants of up to £5,000 to individuals experiencing financial hardship as a result of Covid-19. Funding will help support individual musicians, DJs, artists, actors, craftspeople and freelancers and other creative practitioners who work in the creative industries to sustain and build their creative, professional and technical skills in these challenging times.

The Individuals Emergency Resilience Programme 2 is part of the £29 million Executive allocation that was made to the Department for Communities to support the arts, culture, heritage and language sectors which have been severely impacted by Covid-19.

The programme will open for applications on Thursday 17 December 2020.
