13 Vestfold projects endorsed by the Cultural Heritage Fund
The Norwegian Cultural Heritage Fund has distributed its annual funds. 13 cultural monuments in Vestfold are preserved due to grants from the Fund.
A total of 13 projects have received NOK 2.7 million in grants all-in-all. There were 21 applications from Vestfold that asked for a total of NOK five million.
The number of applications to the Cultural Heritage Fund (Kulturminnefondet) has increased a lot in recent years. The Cultural Heritage Fund is helping to save more cultural monuments across Norway than ever before.
City and towns is a priority area, and for the past two years, the application volume from Oslo has increased by more than twice from the years before.
– The Cultural Heritage Fund is a low-threshold offer for private owners, and we are working hard to simplify the application process. The large amount of applications indicates that we are on the right track in this work, says Director of the Cultural Heritage Fund, Simen Bjørgen.
He is also pleased that the Government has strengthened the Cultural Heritage Fund with increased grants, which makes it possible to support more worthy initiatives across the country.
No application deadline
The Cultural Heritage Fund previously had one annual application deadline, but as of 2019 onwards this will change. Then the application deadline will be gone and it will be possible to apply all year round. Private owners of protectable cultural heritage can already submit their application for support for 2019, but no decision is made before the New Year.
