The fund (formerly the Structures at Risk Fund) is for conservation works to heritage structures, in both private and public ownership.

The fund is administered through the local authorities. The allocation for 2019 is up to €1.8 million.

  • Stream 2 will offer grants from €50,000 up to €200,000 for larger enhancement or significant refurbishment projects involving historic structures, where a clear benefit to the community and the public has been demonstrated. Funding under Stream 2 may be phased over two years
  • The maximum grant available for Stream 1 will be 80% of the eligible costs.
  • The maximum grant available for Stream 2 will generally be 50% of the eligible costs, however, in exceptional circumstances applicants may seek a higher percentage of eligible costs, subject to a maximum overall rate of 80%.
