Grant Aid for Building Conservation 'Quanta' Research (2011)

Prepared by Carrig Conservation International Ltd in association with Louise Harrington & Integral Finance Technology Ltd. upon instruction from the Heritage Council, this study on grant-giving in Ireland makes the case for continued state authority funding of a wide range of built heritage grants. The study also outlines the growing interest in ‘preventative maintenance’ and how to achieve value for money in grant-giving for building conservation.

The study was funded as an action of The Government Policy on Architecture 2009 — 2015, as a preliminary study for Action 18 (- to review financial assistance and tax relief for built heritage conservation).
