Mayo County Council wishes to invite applications under the Built Heritage Investment Scheme (BHIS) for 2017, as operated by the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.

Grants of between €2,500 and €10,000 will be awarded, with applicants required to provide a minimum of 50% of total costs.
