Edinburgh World Heritage/Funding & Advice

Edinburgh World Heritage’s Conservation Funding Programme helps conserve historic buildings within the World Heritage Site. We offer up to 70% grant of eligible works and we can fund historic building repairs, conservation and enhancement and area regeneration.

Two types of funding are available: Repayable grants for private owners and commercial buildings and Project funding for public, community or charitable organisations.



Edinburgh World Heritage provides advice and support for owners of historic homes in maintaining their building. And, as a partner of the RENFORUS initiative – Renewable Energy Futures for UNESCO Sites – we’ve compiled info on energy efficiency solutions that can improve the thermal performance of historic buildings, reduce carbon emissions and lower fuel bills.
