STRUCTURES AT RISK FUND (SRF) 2017

The Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs (DAHRRGA) is continuing the Structures at Risk Fund for 2017.  This will be administered by Irenie McLoughlin, Architectural Conservation Officer of South Dublin County Council.

The purpose of the Structures at Risk Fund (SRF) is to assist with works to safeguard structures protected under the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended); including works to proposed protected structures, and in certain cases, works to safeguard structures within Architectural Conservation Areas, where, in the opinion of the Department, an urgent need for works to such structures has arisen and has been demonstrated. Only structures in immediate danger of significant deterioration will qualify for consideration for funding by the Department.

DAHRRGA will consider no more than 2 applications per local authority, only 1 of which may be a publicly-owned building.  A third application can be put forward to the Department from South Dublin County Council if it relates to an Irish Historic House in private ownership.

The total value of funding available for each individual project shall not exceed 80% of the total project cost.  The minimum level of funding available under the SRF will be €15,000 up to a maximum grant of €30,000. The minimum level of funding available under the SRF for a third project submitted by a local authority in respect of a historic house in private ownership will be €5,000 up to a maximum of €10,000.
