Money for old rope: Kilkenny heritage groups can apply for €15,000 grants
Heritage groups in Kilkenny can apply for grants of €15,000 as part of a Covid-19 scheme.
The Heritage Council is now accepting applications for its Rebuilding Heritage: Covid-19 Stimulus Fund Community Heritage Grant Scheme, which is aimed at not for profit heritage organisations.
As part of the Government’s Covid-19 July Jobs Stimulus, the Heritage Council will award €550,000 to community groups and heritage organisations under the Community Heritage Grants Scheme.
The aim of the scheme is to support capital projects that improve access and inclusion to heritage sites and that apply good heritage practice to the management of places, collections, or objects (including buildings). The scheme also supports the purchase of essential equipment.
Eighty percent of the total project expenditure can be awarded under the scheme, to a maximum value of €15,000.
Further details on the Community Heritage Grant Scheme 2020 can be found on the Heritage Council website. The closing date for applications is September 15, 2020.
