IERP 2 opens on 17 December
The Department for Communities and Arts Council Northern Ireland have announced that a second round of support from the Individuals Emergency Resilience Programme opens for applications on 17 December. Deadline 7 January 2021.
£3.25 million of funding has been allocated to support those experiencing financial hardship as a result of Covid-19, who will be able to apply for support of up to £5,000 - or £7,500 for disabled individuals with support costs.
Craftspeople and artists are eligible to apply, and priority will be given to those who have been unable to access support from other sources. Specifically, those who have already received ACNI funding in 2020 will be held in reserve but may receive support if the budget allows.
ACNI is hosting information webinars on Tuesday 15 and Friday 18 December. Book here.
