Historic Structures Fund (HSF) 2019 – Announcement

Leitrim County Council wishes to invite applications under the above funding scheme as operated by the Department of Culture, Heritage, and the Gaeltacht. The core aims of this fund are to enable larger scale conservation works to be carried out on heritage structures which are deemed to be significant and in need of urgent works; to encourage the regeneration and reuse of heritage properties; to help to secure the preservation of protected structures and/or historic-culturally significant assets and to support the investment of private capital in labour-intensive projects to conserve historic structures in public and private ownership for community use. The Historic Structures Fund has two Streams:

·         Stream 1 will offer grants from €15,000 up to €50,000 and is aimed at essential repairs and smaller capital works for the refurbishment and conservation of heritage structures (funding of up to €1m for 2019 under this Stream).

·         Stream 2 will offer a small number of grants from €50,000 up to €200,000 for larger enhancement, refurbishment or reuse projects involving heritage structures, where a clear community or public benefit has been demonstrated (funding of up to €1m for 2019 under this Stream).

This Grants scheme will be administered by Leitrim County Council. Applicants should read the Guidelines and be familiar with the qualifying criteria and conditions of the scheme.
