Longford Leader Farming: GLAS Traditional Farm Buildings Grant Scheme now open

Conserving our traditional farm buildings

The opening of the 2022 GLAS Traditional Farm Buildings Grant Scheme has been announced by Agriculture Minister Charlie McConalogue

The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue TD, has announced the opening of the 2022 GLAS Traditional Farm Buildings Grant Scheme.

This scheme funds the conservation of traditional farm buildings and structures of significant heritage value that contribute to our rural landscape, for agricultural use.

The Heritage Council manages the scheme on behalf of the Department, and it is open to applicants who participate in the GLAS.
The scheme helps demonstrate that sensitive conservation action and management by farmers safeguards these habitats and contributes to the reversal of biodiversity loss.

The grants available range between €4,000 and €25,000 with up to 75% of the cost of the project eligible for funding with a maximum available grant of €25,000.

Virginia Teehan, Heritage Council CEO, said: “As well as their inherent cultural heritage value traditional farm buildings are an integral component of the Irish rural landscape.”

The closing date for receipt of online applications is February 22, 2022 at 5pm. The scheme's terms and conditions, further information and the online application form are available at https://www.heritage
