Grants are now available for the conservation of historic buildings in Laois. Two grant schemes are available:
- The Structures at Risk Fund, for buildings in imminent danger of collapse
- The Built Heritage Investment Scheme, for more routine conservation works.
The closing date for both schemes is 28th February. Buildings must be either on the Record of Protected Structures or within an Architectural Conservation Area to be eligible for funding.
The schemes are funded by the Department of Arts, Heritage, Rural, Regional and Gaeltacht Affairs. Full details of the schemes including application forms are available here.
