The 2019 GLAS traditional Farm buildings grant scheme has been launched today by Minister Creed, with farmers now allowed to apply for grants of up to €25,000.

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed T.D., has today (January 21st) announced the opening of the Traditional Farm Buildings scheme as part of GLAS 2019.

The scheme funds the restoration and preservation of traditional farm buildings and structures which hold significant heritage value and are conserved for agricultural use. The scheme is administered by the Heritage Council on behalf of the Department of Agriculture.

The main aim of the scheme is to support the restoration of traditional farm buildings and related structures, whilst also allowing them to have a renewed practical use on the farm. Other related structures which can be restored as part of the scheme include historic farmyards, walls, gate pillars, gates and more.

The scheme is open to any existing participant in the Department’s principal agri-environment scheme of which there are just under 50,000. The total allocation for the scheme for 2019 is set at €6million and it was funded by the Department under Ireland’s Rural Development Programme 2014-2020.

Grants of between €4,000 to €25,000 can now be applied for under the scheme, covering up to 75% of the cost of works.
