Heritage and Conservation

Level of Funding: STREAM 1Minimum €15,000 - Maximum €50,000; STREAM 2 Minimum €50,000 - Maximum €200,000

Fingal County Council is now accepting applications for the Historic Structures Fund. The primary focus of this scheme is the conservation and enhancement of historic structures and buildings for the benefit of communities and the public.  Protected Structures, proposed Protected Structures and in certain cases, works to structures within Architectural Conservation Areas are eligible.  Fingal County Council facilitates the initial applications but the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht operates and determines the final list of nationwide projects to be granted funding.  Under Stream 1 the Department will consider only 3 applications per local authority from private owners or community groups and 1 application for a public building.  Under Stream 2 only 1 application per local authority from private owners or community groups and 1 application for a public building can be put forward.  It is a requirement of the scheme that works are overseen by an appropriately qualified conservation professional and for a comprehensive methodology to be submitted with the application. 

The Guidance Circular on the Historic Structures Fund 2020, which explains the scheme and the Application Form, are available to download.
