Heritage Management Grant Scheme

Irish Walled Towns Network (IWTN) Grant Scheme

Late applications will not be considered. Only the quality of the project as presented in the application will be considered. There is an independent panel of three people that administer each of the two IWTN grant streams. The IWTN Project Manager acts as secretary and provides recommendations. The panel may or may not take those recommendations. Each panel is usually made up of a representative from the Heritage Council, the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, and the private sector. All panel members have relevant experience. The make-up of the panel differs according to the grant stream. 

There is no grants appeals process.
