Cadw offers grants as a contribution towards the costs of repairing and restoring historic assets as well as match funding towards community, local authority and third sector led projects.
Cadw will consider grant offers to:
- Owners for buildings that are of outstanding architectural interest, ‘at risk’ or where the funding will have substantial community regeneration benefits. The rate of grant allocated will usually be no more than 30% of eligible works.
- Owners of scheduled ancient monuments to protect and enhance them. Such grants generally take one of two forms. The first involves a grant to the owner or someone acting on his/her behalf for works which will benefit the monument. The second is based on a 'management agreement' between Cadw and the occupier of a monument which lasts for a set number of years. Under such an agreement financial help is given for positive works on a regular basis, such as fencing, scrub clearance, erosion repair, and stock control.
- Local authorities towards conservation works which are part of local authority and Cadw Town Scheme Partnerships (TSPs) or the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Townscape Heritage Initiative.
- Third sector or community groups for projects which promote local heritage under Cadw’s Civic Initiatives (Heritage) Grant Scheme. The maximum grant is £5,000 to be match funded by non-public sector sources.
- Heritage organisations to help meet the costs of their work in Wales.
