Grants Programme 2012
From 7th October to 11th November 2011, the Heritage Council will be inviting applications for funding under the following schemes in 2012:
· Heritage Research provides assistance for data collection and research relating to Ireland's heritage
· Heritage Management supports projects that apply good heritage practice to the management of places, collections or objects (including buildings)
· Heritage Education, Community and Outreach supports initiatives linking heritage to communities, promoting active engagement with and raising public appreciation of heritage.
How to Apply?
Applications must be made through the Heritage Council's online grants system between 7th October and 11th November 2011 at 5pm. Applications cannot be submitted outside this timeframe.
Who can apply?
Each scheme is open to individuals, non-profit organisations such as environmental NGOs, local community groups, heritage and preservation societies, local authorities, statutory organisations, academic institutions and private companies.
An application may be completed by a professional or other advisor on behalf of a client, but the client is deemed to be the Applicant. All communication will be with the Applicant, and the advisor must provide the Applicant with the log-in details for using the Council's online grants.
The schemes are open to applicants from anywhere in the world but the project work must be carried out in Ireland. Projects based in the republic of Ireland, in Northern Ireland or in both jurisdictions are eligible, but those in the republic will be given priority. References in this document to institutions and legislation in the republic should be taken as encompassing the equivalent institutions and legislation in Northern Ireland; applicants from outside the republic must comply with Irish tax law.
Full details on the Grants Programme 2012 will be available on our website on 7th October 2012.
Please note that all schemes are subject to funding being made available to the Heritage Council in 2012.
