Arts Council of Wales | Distributing Lottery Funds

Distributing Lottery Funds

We distribute Lottery funds through a range of funding programmes supporting individuals, communities and organisations in Wales.

1,077 Lottery funding applications were processed by Arts Council of Wales during 2015/16.

Developing new arts activity

Through applications to our Lottery funding programmes we’re able to fund projects that develop new arts activity, supporting individuals, communities and organisations.

As well as meeting the Council’s strategic aims, applications must demonstrate benefit to the people of Wales across all regional, cultural and economic sectors.

Capital grants

Lottery capital grants, to organisations only, support the purchase, improvement, restoration, building or creation of an asset that will be used continuously.

Strategic delegation

Council has delegated its Lottery grant making in a number of strategic areas to Ffilm Cymru Wales, Nesta, BBC Cymru Wales, Literature Wales, and Tŷ Cerdd.
