This fund assists with works to safeguard certain historic structures into the future where, in the opinion of the DCHG, an urgent need has been demonstrated. It aims to reduce the risk of deterioration of Ireland’s architectural heritage while supporting employment for conservation professionals, contractors and specialists. It also supports owners/occupiers in their long-term commitment to securing the future of the architectural heritage.
Only structures or parts of structures in immediate danger of significant deterioration will qualify for consideration for funding by DCHG.
The SRF is not intended to assist in the carrying out of routine maintenance, alterations or improvements. All works carried out under the SRF must be capital works. In respect of the apportioned amount for Irish Historic Houses in private ownership, funding will be provided on the basis of strategic and urgent conservation works.
