Sligo County Council in association with the County Sligo Heritage Forum is committed to “working with the community, to know, value and care for Sligo’s heritage and to increase awareness, appreciation and enjoyment of our heritage for all”.
Sligo County Council continues to have a pivotal role to play in nurturing and encouraging pride in our heritage and the Community Heritage Grant Scheme provides an ideal opportunity for the Local Authority to work in a dynamic partnership with local communities to foster awareness and appreciation of our heritage. Sligo County Council encourages projects which relate to all aspects of our heritage which include the following: monuments, archaeological objects, heritage objects, architectural heritage, flora, fauna, wildlife habitats, landscapes, seascapes, wrecks, geology, as well as heritage gardens and parks. Projects relating to local history and traditions, placenames, folklore, traditional crafts and skills and museums and archives will also be considered under the scheme.
A total funding package of €11,000 is available during 2012 for the grant scheme and it is unlikely that any grant allocated will exceed €500.
