Built Heritage Investment Scheme 2019  

Josepha Madigan TD, Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, has announced the Built Heritage Investment Scheme 2019 and Historic Structures Fund 2019.  More than 500 built heritage projects will benefit from the schemes.  Both schemes are open for applications from the 28th November 2018 and the deadline is Thursday 31st January 2019.

Minister Madigan said: "I am delighted to announce that the 2019 schemes are now open for applications.  These two schemes represent an investment by my Department of up to €4.3 million to support more than 500 built heritage projects across the country in 2019.  As part of the Estimates process this year, I made a firm commitment to increase the number of projects which could be supported under my Department's very popular built heritage schemes.  I am delivering on that commitment today".

Minister Madigan continued: "As well as supporting people who are working to care for and restore our built heritage, these grants will help to regenerate rural areas and towns.  Our built heritage is a vital part of our cultural landscape.  I am delighted to be able to continue improving our investment in protecting it for the future".

The Built Heritage Investment Scheme and the Historic Structures Fund will support the owners of protected structures in every local authority area across the country in 2019 as they carry out hundreds of small-scale, labour-intensive projects to conserve and repair our historic built environment.  The projects will also provide vital support for local jobs in conservation, construction and traditional skills.

The schemes include up to €2.5 million in funding for the Built Heritage Investment Scheme and up to €1.8 million for the Historic Structures Fund.  The allocations will attract additional funding, yielding a total investment of over €5 million in 2019.  Applications are open from the 28th November 2018 and the deadline is Thursday 31st January 2019.  Download the circular on the Built Heritage Investment Scheme and Historic Structures Fund below:
