Green Homes Grant

What Is Green Homes Grant?

The Green Homes Grant is a new initiative for homeowners to help them make their homes more energy-efficient. This scheme will be launched towards the end of September 2020 and will run until March 2021
Under this scheme, the government will pay 2/3 of the cost of energy-efficient home improvements up to the value of £5000 per household. In some eligible cases, the value could be higher to the max value of £10,000.
The grants will be provided in the form of vouchers which can be used towards the cost of installing energy-efficient and low-carbon heating improvements to homes.
Environmentally friendly improvements such as loft, floor and wall insulation or double glazing to replace single glazing are included in the scheme. Undoubtedly these improvements will result in huge savings on their energy bills.

Under Green Homes Grant scheme, we offer:

  • Room in Roof Insulation.
    We will also provide you with new radiators and Heating controls.
  • Flat Roof/ Loft Insulation.
    We will also do Under-floor Insulation and provide you with Heating Controls and Energy Efficient Bulbs
  • Air Source Heat Pumps (coming soon)

What Is Green Homes Grant Value?

Under the scheme the government will provide a voucher that covers up to two thirds of the cost of qualifying improvements. The maximum value of the voucher is £5,000.

Homeowners may be able to receive a higher level of subsidy if they or a member of of their household receives one of the qualifying benefits covering 100% of the cost of the improvements. The maximum value of these voucher is £10,000.

Who Can Apply For The Vouchers?

For the general scheme, most homes in England will be covered by the grant. Both homeowners and landlords will be eligible, although new build domestic properties and non-domestic properties (such as shops and offices) are not included in the scheme.

Landlords cannot apply for the low-income part of the scheme.

Who Does The Green Homes Grant Cover?

Vouchers must be used to install at least one primary home insulation or low carbon heating measure.
If homeowners choose to install at least one of the primary measures, they can use their voucher to help cover the cost of secondary measures. The subsidy for the secondary measure is capped at the value of the subsidy provided for the primary measures. So, for example, if you’ve received £1,000 towards cavity wall and roof insulation, you can only receive a maximum of £1,000 towards any secondary measures, such as double glazing or thermostats.

For the low-income scheme, only owner-occupied properties and park homes are eligible. You can qualify for the Green Home Grants low-income scheme if you receive at least one of the following:

  • Attendance Allowance
  • Carer’s Allowance
  • Child Tax Credits (CTC)
  • Contribution based Employment & Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Contribution based Jobseekers allowance (JSA)
  • Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • Income based Employment & Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Income based Jobseekers allowance (JSA)
  • Income Support (IS)
  • Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit

What If I Have Claimed SEO Grants?

You will not be able to claim a Green Homes Grant subsidy vouchers towards the cost of a measure which has also received funding under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). However, you can claim both ECO and Green Homes Grant subsidy providing they are each for different measures – for example loft insulation and cavity wall insulation.

Firstly Construction circle, green homes grant Bradford unlike free boiler. Obviously green homes grant Bradford  along with boiler grants. Free Bradford boiler scheme before green homes grant Bradford. Definitely new boiler grant besides boiler grants 2020. Clearly government free boiler scheme alike free boiler for disabled. Indeed government boiler scheme but eco boiler scheme along with boiler scheme. Importantly new boiler scheme with boiler replacement allowance but government boiler grants. Undoubtedly boiler grants 2020 also central heating grants and boiler replacement grants. Secondly free Green homes grant alike free gas boiler eventually government heating grants.
