Funding to conserve our heritage 20 September 2017

A funding scheme to help conserve our historic built heritage has been opened to applications (via the Department for Communities)

 

DFC

 

The Repair Stream of the Historic Environment Fund, managed by the Department for Communities (DfC), is focused on supporting scheduled monuments and priority categories of listed buildings such as those that are on the buildings at risk register, thatched buildings, and those with owners on certain qualifying benefits. All work has to be completed within the current financial year.

Launching the fund, 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.

“Last weekend thousands of people visited historic heritage attractions across Northern Ireland as part of European Heritage Open Days, which demonstrated the great debt we, as a society, have to those who look after and maintain these structures.  It is therefore important that we provide support, particularly to those structures and owners most in need.

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

Further information on how to apply to the Fund is available here…
