Green Homes Grant Scheme opens soon
8th Sep 2020
The government will provide a voucher worth up to £5,000 or £10,000 to help cover the cost of making energy-efficient improvements to your home. Improvements could include insulating your home to reduce your energy use or installing low-carbon heating to lower the amount of carbon dioxide your home produces.
You must redeem the voucher and ensure improvements are completed by 31 March 2021.
You can apply for the voucher from the end of September. In the meantime, you can find out what improvements can be made to your home and obtain quotes from certified tradespeople.
The government will provide a voucher that covers two-thirds of the cost of qualifying energy efficiency or low carbon heating improvements to your home. The maximum value of the voucher is £5,000.
If you are on a low income and receive certain benefits, you can receive a voucher covering all of the cost of the improvements. The maximum value of the voucher is £10,000.
To apply for the voucher, you must either:
- own your home (including park homeowners, long-leaseholders and shared ownership)
- be a private or social landlord
