Irish Georgian Society Conservation Grant 2017
Information on this year's conservation grant:
The Irish Georgian Society is inviting applications to their 2017 Conservation Grants Programme, which provides financial support for works to structures of significant architectural merit. A total of €50,000 is available and grants will be awarded with priority given to protected structures and recorded monuments of significant architectural merit. Structures of all periods are eligible but priority will be given to older buildings on the basis of rarity and potential fragility relating to age.
The Irish Georgian Society’s Conservation Grants Programme is funded by its London Chapter through funds raised from its activities and members’ generous bequests. Over the last three years, the Society has supported over thirty significant conservation projects from around the country, that have included works to country houses and castles, thatched cottages and historic townhouses, architectural follies, and churches.
The closing date for application forms is 5.00pm on Friday 24th February 2017. Please visit the Irish Georgian Society page on the grant for more information. Alternatively the application form may be downloaded here.
Please note that this grant is entirely administered by the IGS and is completely separate from Longford County Council, the Longford Heritage Office and the conservation grants administrated by them. Completed applications must be returned to the IGS and not Longford County Council or the Longford Heritage Office.
