This second round of the Individuals Emergency Resilience Programme (IERP) is in addition to £4.274 million already awarded to individuals since April 2020; it makes up a total of £33m of emergency Covid-19 funding from DfC to support the arts, culture, heritage and language sectors which have been severely impacted by the pandemic.
