FINT Kulturminnevern was launched in 2020, and is currently used by all of Norway's county authorities and the City of Oslo's Department of Cultural Heritage. The service is provided in collaboration with the Directorate for Cultural Heritage and Machina.
If you own or manage a cultural monument, you can apply for grants for measures such as restoration, protection and management. Digisak is the cultural heritage administration's application portal, and here you can apply for grants for restoration, repair or protection of your cultural heritage.
