Who is eligible?
The funding is targeted at properties in the private sector (owner occupiers and the private rented sector) and in most cases in certain geographical areas within the six local authorities.
To be eligible, your household income must be less that £30,000 a year. Your home must also have a low energy efficiency rating – that is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D, E, F or G – and where you don’t have an EPC, an assessment may be carried out. You can check if your home has an Energy Performance Certificate here.
A limited amount of the funding will be available to selected Housing Associations and where this is the case, residents will be contacted directly by their Housing Association.
