Wicklow County Council invites applications from owners of historic buildings, protected structures and structures within Architectural Conservation Areas (ACAs) under the following two grant schemes as operated by the Department of Housing, Local government and Heritage;
Built Heritage Investment Scheme (BHIS) 2023, and the
