Applications are now open for Green Homes Grant Scheme
On 30th September the UK Government opened applications for the Green Homes Grant Scheme, which allows landlords and homeowners to apply for a grant of up to £10,000 towards the cost of making homes more energy efficient.
The Green Homes Grant Scheme
Under the scheme landlords and homeowners in England can apply for a voucher to fund at least two-thirds of the cost of hiring tradespeople to upgrade the energy performance of their homes, up to a maximum contribution of £5,000 or up to £10,000 for lower-income households.
The aim of the Green Home Grant is to upgrade over 600,000 homes across England, with the UK Government saying that this will save households hundreds of pounds per year on their energy bills.
You may be eligible if you live in England and:
- You own your own home (including long-leaseholders and shared ownership)
- You own your own park home on a residential site (including Gypsy and Traveller sites)
- You’re a residential landlord in the private or social rented sector (including local authorities and housing associations)
You cannot get the Green Homes Grant for newly built homes which have not been previously occupied.
The scheme is now open for applications.
