Community Heritage Grant Scheme
To Mark the European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH) in 2018, Irish Heritage Council are focusing our Community Heritage Grant Scheme on the theme Make a Connection, to encourage communities throughout Ireland to build heritage connections that will last long beyond the year. The Heritage Council are looking for creative, engaging projects that provide a way for the public to learn about and manage our natural and cultural heritage. 

Who can apply?
The scheme is open to:

  • not-for-profit voluntary and community groups, and
  • heritage-related non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

Applications from other organisations or individuals will not be accepted. 

The Heritage Council has allocated €750,000 to this scheme in 2018. The most you may ask for is 75% of the funding of the total project expenditure, up to a maximum of €8,000. 


Historic Towns Grant Scheme

The Historic Towns Initiative will allocate a sum of €1 million among a number of historic towns for heritage-led urban regeneration projects. A total fund of €1,000,000 (capital funding) is available to local authorities under the Historic Towns Initiative (HTI). Each local authority may put forward one application for funding under the HTI 2018 for a historic town in their functional area.

Closing Date: 22nd February 2018 at 5:00pm (online application process)
