Built Heritage Investment Scheme (BHIS) 2020 & Historic Structures Fund (HSF) grants for 2020 available
The Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht has announced 2 funding schemes for Protected Structures – the Built Heritage Investment Scheme (BHIS) 2020 and the Historic Structures Fund (HSF) 2020. Since 2016 Waterford has received over €900,000 in Department funding for its built heritage. This funding stream is designed to support owners and custodians caring for our built heritage and ensuring that it is protected into the future.
The primary focus of the Historic Structures Fund will be on conservation and enhancement of historic structures and buildings for the broader benefit of communities and the public. Funding for the Historic Structures Fund (HSF) is being made available as part of Project Ireland 2040. Total funding available nationally under the Historic Structures fund in 2020 will be €1,824,000.
Closing date for both applications is 5pm, 27th January 2020 and strictly no applications will be accepted after this date.
