Here’s the official notice…

“There’s a new fund available for artists and companies bringing work to Fringe 2023, and it’s worth £100,000.The Keep it Fringe fund will distribute 50 awards of £2,000 to shows registered for this year’s Fringe. You don’t need to have completed registration to apply, but funding will only be awarded to successful applicants once they’ve registered their show.Applications open at 12:00 GMT on Friday 10 March 2023; if you have any questions, we’re hosting an online information session at 16:00 GMT tomorrow (Wednesday 08 March). The recorded session will also be available to watch again on Fringe Connect.”

A great initiative. But it won’t do much to dent the quote I had last year for a 3-bedroomed flat in Edinburgh – £10,500 FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST!
