We are now inviting applications for expressions of interest for grant funding for financial year 2019-20.
The deadline for application is 5 April 2019. Late applications will be declined.
Cadw offers grants for the conservation of historic assets, including the protection and enhancement of scheduled monuments, and the repair and restoration of historic buildings in community use.
The historic buildings grant scheme supports the Welsh Government strategy entitled “Prosperity for All” by offering grants towards the cost of repairing and restoring historic community assets, such as village and community halls, institutes, libraries etc. Places of worship which are open for wider community use may also apply.
The focus is on repair schemes which will help give a new lease of life to listed buildings that are at risk and which will deliver benefits to Welsh communities. One of the ways in which these benefits can be provided is through skills development, training, and access opportunities. You will find more information about this in ‘Grants for Historic Assets: Skills Development and Access Opportunities’.
We normally fund the costs of up to 50% of grant eligible works up to a maximum of £50,000; however each application will be considered on a case by case basis.
Grants towards the protection and enhancement of scheduled monuments may also be available either as a one off block grant or a 5 year management agreement between Cadw and the occupier of a monument.
Under such an agreement financial help may be given towards the cost of positive works such as fencing, scrub clearance, erosion repair, and stock control.
