Grants Schemes in Cork City

The following grant schemes are being run in Cork City in 2014. The grant schemes are being run by the Strategic Planning and Economic Development Directorate to contribute to the regeneration and enhancement of Cork’s City Centre (historic core) and also the good custodianship of Cork's built heritage. The Built Heritage and Jobs Leverage Scheme is funded by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht (DAHG) and the other schemes are funded by the City Council from its own scarce resources.



The Grants for the DAHG funded Conservation of Protected Structures Grant Scheme has been superceded by the Built Heritage Jobs Leverage Scheme in 2014. The DAHG funded Structures at Risk Fund is not being run in 2014.
