Built Heritage Investment Scheme & Historic Structures Fund 2019 announced

The Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht announced has announced 2 funding schemes for Protected Structures – the Built Heritage Investment Scheme (BHIS) 2019 and the Historic Structures Fund (HSF) 2019.  Funding for the Historic Structures Fund is being made available as part of Investing in our Culture, Language and Heritage 2018-2027.

Built Heritage Investment Scheme (BHIS) 2019 
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 trades persons in the repair of Protected Structures and in certain cases, the conservation of structures within Architectural Conservation Areas (ACA).  Waterford has been allocated €114,000. Funding awards made under the scheme will be between €2,500 and €15,000, with applicants matching the grants being awarded.

The Historic Structures Fund (HSF) 2019
The primary focus of the HSF will be on conservation and enhancement of historic structures and buildings for the benefit of communities and the public. The funding will

  • enable larger scale conservation works to be carried out on heritage structures which are deemed to be significant and in need of urgent support;
  • encourage the regeneration and reuse of heritage properties and to help to secure the preservation of protected structures and/or historic-culturally significant assets;
  • support the investment of private capital in labour-intensive projects to conserve historic structures in public and private ownership for community use

Stream 1 will offer grants from €15,000 up to €50,000 and is aimed at essential repairs and smaller capital works for the refurbishment and conservation of heritage structures. Stream 2 will offer a small number of grants from €50,000 up to €200,000 for larger enhancement, refurbishment or reuse projects involving heritage structures, where a clear community or public benefit has been demonstrated.

These schemes will be administered by Waterford City and County Council. The criteria, list of qualifying works and the application forms for the Built Heritage Investment Scheme 2019 and Historic Structures Fund 2019 are  HERE.

Completed application forms and photos of the structures must be submitted by email only  to,  by 5 pm on  28th of January 2019. The Department will formally approve projects for funding by 1st of March 2019. Successful applicants must have the works completed by 27th of September 2019.

Christmas Message from Cllr. Declan Doocey, Mayor of the City and County of Waterford

As Mayor of Waterford, I would like to wish all of the people a most peaceful, prosperous and happy Christmas. Christmas is a joyful time and a time for friends and family to come together and enjoy all that is good about our lives.

I urge you as Mayor of Waterford to enjoy your time with your friends, family and those near and dear to you and give time to those who may not have many people around them. I wish a joyous season to everyone who is living, visiting or working in Waterford this Christmas and New Year.

My key message this year is for all the people of Waterford to look to the local for Christmas. I am proud as Mayor of Waterford and I want the people of Waterford to be proud of what we have this Christmas.

There is a fantastic effort by all of the businesses and organisations to ensure Waterford is looking its best for Christmas. Our headline festivals, Waterford Winterval and Dungarvan Aglow are putting Waterford on the national festival calendar and I encourage you all to support local this year. Support your local shop and local craft fair in your village, town or City.

Buy as locally as you can.

I look forward to 2019 and I believe Waterford can achieve great things. Finally I would once again like to wish all the people of Waterford City & County and those visiting over the holidays a Happy Christmas and every good wish to you and yours for 2019.
