Green Home Grant
The Green Home Grant scheme was announced as part of the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s Summer Statement on 8th July 2020.
Under this scheme homeowners and landlords will be able to apply for a voucher to fund up to two-thirds of the cost of hiring tradespeople to upgrade the energy performance of their home (up to a maximum contribution of around £5000). Low-income households will be eligible for up to 100% government funding, up to approximately £10,000.
The government have ensured that the tradespeople involved in the scheme are of a high standard, giving households confidence that improvements to their homes will be of the highest quality. When the voucher scheme opens, you will be able to choose a from a list of quality-assured contractors to do the work.
The scheme does not launch until September, and we will be updating the information here as and when we know more.
In the meantime, you can find out details on the scheme, and the range of measures that vouchers will be available can be found on the Government’s Simple Energy Advice website. Further information on how to apply for a voucher will be announced by the government ahead of the scheme’s full launch in the Autumn.
