News announced today that over 450 heritage organisations have benefitted from the first wave of the UK Government's £1.57bn Cultural Recovery Fund. Twitter seems to be full with announcements from individual organisations, many of which hold collections of fine and decorative art. It seems that this will benefit conservation projects the most, rather than front line jobs.

The BBC have announced that:

Organisations, including English Heritage, the Landmark Trust and Historic Royal Palaces, will receive £34m from the Heritage Stimulus Fund to restart conservation and maintenance.

The Historical Houses Association have also announced that several of their associated properties, many with exquisite art collections, have also benefitted from the scheme. This includes properties such as Highclere Castle and Penshurst Place.
