Grants for the repair of Georgian Buildings

January 31, 2008

logoThrough the F. E. Cleary Heritage Fund (commonly known as The Cleary Fund), The Georgian Group gives small grants each year towards the repair and restoration of Georgian buildings and monuments in the United Kingdom.

This adds a highly practical and positive dimension to the Group’s conservation work; in many instances, even though the amount of money given is small in absolute terms, the grant makes a major difference to the viability of a restoration scheme.

The intention is to pump-prime schemes, prompt other sources to make grants and to fund specific elements in larger schemes.

Around five grants, averaging about £1500 each, are given annually.

Grants are usually made towards the conservation of buildings in public ownership or to which there is public access, although they may occasionally be given towards other projects such as the recording of threatened buildings.

Applications for Cleary Fund grants are considered annually in September. The deadline for applications for 2008 is 21 August 2008.
