Structures at Risk (SRF) Fund – Announcement
Leitrim County Council wishes to invite applications under the above recently announced funding scheme as operated by the Department of Culture, Heritage, and the Gaeltacht. The purpose of the Structure at Risk Fund (SRF) is to assist with works to safeguard structures that are protected structures under the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended) including works to structures eligible for or proposed for inclusion in the Record of Protected Structures and in certain cases, for the conservation of structures within Architectural Conservation Areas (ACAs) where it is considered that an urgent need for works to such structures has been demonstrated. Only structures or parts of structures in immediate danger of significant deterioration will qualify for consideration for funding.
The Department of Culture, Heritage, and the Gaeltacht will consider a maximum of 5 applications per local authority, four general applications only (only 1 of which may be a publicly-owned building) and a fifth application only if it relates to an Irish Historic House in private ownership.
The total value of funding available for each individual project shall not exceed 80% of the total project cost. The minimum level of funding awarded under the SRF will be €15,000 up to a maximum grant of €30,000. The minimum level of funding awarded for a fifth project submitted by a local authority in respect of a historic house in private ownership will be €5,000 up to a maximum of €10,000.
Applicants should read the guidelines (see Circular SRF 2018 below) and be familiar with the qualifying criteria and conditions of the scheme. All applicants must complete Application Form A (see below) and return to:
