Built Heritage Job Leverage Scheme 2014 launched
The Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Mr Jimmy Deenihan TD, has launched a new fund – Built Heritage Jobs Leverage Scheme – for the repair and conservation of protected structures. The scheme will be administrated the Local Authotities.
The Built Heritage Jobs Leverage Scheme will encourage the investment of private capital through the provision of matching public funds in a large number of small-scale, labour-intensive projects across Ireland. The aim of projects will be to repair and conserve historic structures while supporting the employment of skilled and experienced conservation professionals, craftworkers and tradespeople. The fund is not intended to assist in the carrying out of routine maintenance, alterations, improvements, or pre-existing works.
The closing date for applications is 4 p.m. on the 4th of February 2014.
