Pilot Scheme for Vernacular Structures to be rolled out in 2021

 

A Pilot Scheme for Vernacular Structures is being rolled out in 2021 under which eligible owners in Donegal can apply for grants of up to €10,000.

The Scheme will focus primarily on the conservation and enhancement of historic structures and buildings for the benefit of communities and the public.

The Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage is rolling out a pilot stream for Vernacular Structures next year.

Heritage Historic Structures Fund recognises that Ireland's historic buildings and structures combine to provide us with a valuable and unique built environment.

Grants of between €5,000 and €10,000 are available.

Many of the buildings are in great need of investment to ensure their preservation and continued use so that they remain a living part of history and community life into the future and the scheme will focus primarily on the conservation and enhancement of historic structures and buildings for the benefit of communities and the public.

The closing date for applications is 4pm Monday 25th January.
