In partnership with the Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine, the Heritage Council administers a grants scheme to REPS 4 participants on the conservation and repair of traditional farm buildings called the REPS 4 Traditional Farm Buildings Grant Scheme (TFBGS). Grants are available to carry out approved conservation works to the exterior of farm outbuildings (roof, outside surface of walls, windows and doors) and associated structures (historic yard surfaces, walls, gate pillars, gates).

Grant amounts vary between €4,000 and €20,000. The process is highly competitive and a grant award will not be for more than 75% of the cost of the works with a maximum available grant of €18,000 to €20,000. The balance of funding may not be from any other State source. The Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine make all payments in relation to this scheme.
