The Irish Georgian Society’s Conservation Grants Programme, supported by its Irish Georgian Society London and US Chapters, provides financial assistance for conservation works to structures of significant architectural merit. A total of €50,000 is available with structures of all periods eligible but with priority given to older buildings on the basis of rarity and potential fragility relating to age.

- Protected structures and recorded monuments. Unprotected structures will only be considered where it is demonstrated that the structure is of architectural and historical interest and hitherto has been overlooked by local authorities and the NIAH.
- Structures of national and international importance will be given priority over buildings of regional importance.
- Generally, unprotected structures within an ACA will be given a low priority.
- Structures of all periods are eligible but priority will be given to older buildings on the basis of rarity and potential fragility relating to age.
