Grant for the Renewal or Repair of Thatch Roofs of Houses

To be eligible under the scheme the building must be a normal place of residence or rented long term. Applications are accepted throughout the year and the grant can be availed of every seven years (if necessary). A grant of two-thirds of the approved cost, up to a maximum of €3,810, is available towards the cost of renovating thatched roofs of owner-occupied houses. A higher level of assistance of up to €5,714 is available for houses on specified offshore islands. Householders with a medical card may be eligible for thatching grants up to a maximum of €6,350 (or €8,253 in the case of houses on offshore islands). In such cases the grant may cover up to 80% of the approved cost of works subject to the maximum grant. There is no set completion date, which means that works can be carried out and claimed in the years following a grant allocation. For more information contact:
