The Heritage Council is now accepting applications from community groups and not-for-profit non-governmental organisations around the country for its Community Heritage Grant Scheme 2024.

A broad range of project types are eligible for funding under the scheme including:

  • Workshops and training events that promote good heritage practice, in particular, we are interested in traditional building skills, craft skills, graveyard recording and biodiversity training.
  • Development of Digital Heritage Resources including digitisation, online exhibitions, oral history recordings, podcasts, and films. You need to make sure that the digital outputs you create
    with grant funding are available, open, and accessible.
  • Conservation surveys, reports, plans, and audits that will inform the future management of buildings and monuments, habitats, collections, or objects.
  • Conservation works to buildings, monuments, habitats, collections, or objects.

This scheme is intended to enable communities and heritage non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to continue their work on existing projects or to start new initiatives.

Projects that can be commenced after an offer date in mid-April and completed before 15th November 2024 can be considered under this scheme.

The scheme is open to:
• Voluntary and community groups for example Tidy Towns groups, local action groups & societies, parish councils, church councils & select vestries.
• Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) including not for profit trusts
• Museum Standards Programme for Ireland (MSPI) participants (NGO’s only)
