The Heritage Council has announced it will allocate €700,000 to projects under its 2016 Heritage Management Grant Scheme. The grants are aimed at supporting projects that apply good heritage practice to the management of places, collections or objects, including buildings.
Grant applications must be submitted on the Heritage Council’s online application system before 5pm on Monday, March 7.
Heritage Council chief executive, Michael Starrett said, “The past number of years has brought many challenges to those working hard to preserve and promote Ireland’s heritage and to highlight its significance to people and their places. In that context, the Heritage Council is delighted to be able to offer some financial assistance to community-based heritage projects. These local projects are very important in protecting our heritage, as well as creating jobs and promoting local tourism.
“The Heritage Council is only in a position to make these grants because of additional financial support given by the Minister for Arts, Heritage and Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys.”
