The BHIS scheme seeks to leverage private capital for investment in small-scale, labour-intensive projects and to support the employment of skilled and experienced conservation professionals, craftspeople and tradespersons in the repair of Protected Structures and in certain cases, the conservation of structures within Architectural Conservation Areas (ACA). Funding awards made under the scheme will be between €2,500 and €15,000, with applicants matching in full the grants being awarded. In relation to projects funded within an ACA, the maximum amount is €10,000 per individual project.
The scheme will be administered by the Conservation Section, Waterford City and County Council. If you are interested, please download the application form and checklist. There is also a guidance booklet and a list of qualifying works and non-qualifying works to assist applicants with information in relation to the application process and operation.
