Historic Buildings Grant

We are not currently inviting new grant applications as we are concentrating available resources on those projects subject to existing offers.

Private owners of domestic dwellings, unless they are open to the public regularly will not be eligible for this grant. The focus for Cadw’s future grant giving will be on historic building repair schemes which will help save listed buildings that are at risk and/or stimulate regeneration opportunities and deliver benefits to Welsh communities. One of the ways in which these benefits can be provided is through skills development and access opportunities. You will find more information about this in ‘Grants for Historic Assets: Skills development and access opportunities.’

Please note that grant is available only up to a maximum of 30% of eligible repair costs.

Grants are also available for historic buildings from other Welsh Government Departments, such as the Community Facilities Programme, or from organisations such as the Heritage Lottery Fund  or the National Churches Trust.

A free and regularly updated online guide to relevant sources of funding for historic buildings is published by the Architectural Heritage Fund on the Funds for Historic Buildings website.
