GRANTS are to be made available, to help improve the energy efficiency of properties in the area of Edinburgh’s World Heritage Site.
The grants – which extend to rainwater management, in the wider context of tackling climate change – are being issued by an organisation tasked with managing the site: Edinburgh World Heritage.
Says Edinburgh World Heritage, here: “Edinburgh World Heritage is launching a Climate Emergency Grant that will provide funding to private owners and public, private and Third Sector organisations wishing to carry out targeted energy-efficiency improvements or climate change adaptation interventions alongside conservation repairs in their properties – specifically involving historic windows, doors and rainwater goods.”
The Edinburgh World Heritage Site covers both the Old and New Towns of the capital.
And grants are capped at £25,000 per project.
