Home improvement grants for people on a low-income

Egest SeiTortor AtQuisPharetra Et Ultrices NequeTempus Urna Et UElementumsNisi

As the funding is a grant, not a loan, it doesn’t need to be repaid and could cover a large part - if not all - of the cost of improving your home.

Who is eligible?

The funding is available if a member of your household receives a qualifying benefit. It is also available if you meet your local authority's 'Help to Heat' criteria. So if you don't claim benefits but you have high fuel costs, if you are older than 65, pregnant, have young children or if you have a health condition it is worth applying as you might be eligible through local authority funding rules.

Yes! The UK Government has carbon reduction targets to meet. All major Energy Companies are obliged by the UK Government to fund these measures. If successful with an application you will get a free grant towards energy-saving measures (in some cases the whole installation might be free).

Are these grants really free?

How much will I get?

It's difficult to tell until a free survey takes place. The grant is paid directly to the installer rather than do you directly.

The scheme is available to homeowners, private renters and housing association tenants that receive at least one or more of the qualifying benefits above and also to households that have high fuel costs in relation to income. Check eligibility here >

Am I eligible for the ECO scheme?

Usually from the point at which you apply to the installation should take no longer than 4 weeks but sometimes you can have your new heating or insulation installed within a week or less.

Who is eligible?

If a member of your household receives a qualifying benefit you might qualify for a grant.

So if you don't claim benefits but you have high fuel costs, if you are older than 65, pregnant, have young children or if you have a health condition it is worth applying as you might be eligible through local authority funding rules.
