Structures at Risk Fund 2016 Grant Scheme
March 21, 2016
The Department of the Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht has just announced the Structures at Risk Fund 2016. This conservation grant scheme is aimed at consolidating and repairing the external envelope and major structural elements of Protected Structures at risk of further deterioration, including country houses in private ownership. Works generally entail repairs to roofs, rainwater goods, external walls, windows, and internal structural elements. Repairs to principle historic decorative elements will also be considered.
Grants will cover no more than 80% of the project costs, and all grants offered will be for between €15,000 – €30,000. Applications are due around mid-April depending on the local authority administering the grant. Applications also require a detailed Method Statement and cost estimates, as well as information about the types and lengths of jobs that will be created. More information can be found on the Department’s website here.
The Structures at Risk grant scheme presents a wonderful opportunity for historic homeowners, and is a principle economic driver that aids in preserving our nation’s built heritage. Contact Sunni today to discuss your project application.
