£860,000 funding for heritage 5 July 2018

£860,000 funding scheme launched to conserve our Heritage

 

DfC


(via Department for Communities)

The Historic Environment Fund, managed by the Department for Communities (DfC), is focused on conserving heritage assets and increasing knowledge and public awareness of the historic environment.

Applications are currently being sought for £860,000 funding across four streams of Heritage Repair, Heritage Regeneration, Heritage Revival and Heritage Research.

Launching the fund, DfC Director of Historic Environment Iain Greenway said: “Our historic monuments and buildings are a key resource which, in addition to their heritage interest, are an important part of our surroundings; contribute to community pride; and help strengthen our economy, right across Northern Ireland, through tourism.

“Limited Funds are available to support the repair of scheduled monuments and listed buildings, the removal of vegetation from scheduled monuments and to encourage councils to develop maintenance initiatives. In addition funds are being invested in research and development projects and in encouraging activity in the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.

“I would encourage owners and organisations to apply for available funding before the closing date of 10 August.”

All work has to be completed within the current financial year.
