DCMS says it does not have a date for announcing successful applicants for the last rounds of the Culture Recovery Fund.
Loans of more than £3m and a capital grants programme are yet to be publicly confirmed despite award applicants being told they would hear the initial outcome of their applications mid-October, and Arts Council England saying the finance would be distributed before December 2020.
Asked whether it had a date in mind, a DCMS spokesperson said "a date for planning purposes" would be shared as soon as the department was able.
Additionally, Arts Council England has rejected a Freedom of Information Act request to disclose the number of unsuccessful applicants to the funding rounds that have already been announced.
The funder says it intends to make that information publicly available soon.
