A community based grant scheme for 2015 has been recently announced by the Heritage Council. This grant scheme will make up to €600,000 available throughout the Country and a wide range of different applications can be applied for (examples include educational, repairs to buildings, conservation plans, research, etc.).
While the scheme is geared at community groups individuals may also apply where they can make a strong case that their project will benefit the local community.
