Green Homes Grant

Helping to improve the energy efficiency of homes within the Liverpool City Region

Green Homes Grant

The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority has secured £11.3m from the Government’s Green Homes Grant scheme to pay for work to reduce energy bills and make homes across the City Region warmer while reducing their environmental impact.

The £11.3m will be split across the City Region’s six local authorities (Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral) and will pay for work to be carried out on around 1200 homes by the end of 2021.


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.

What is available?

Potential improvements will vary depending on the individual property and within the types of works and maximum costs per property allowed. Works might include for example loft and cavity wall insulation, external wall insulation, alternative heating systems such as air source heat pumps, and solar PV panels. 

How can I apply?

If you think you might be eligible for the scheme, or if you want to find out more, you should contact  your local council.

How does it work?

Following an initial assessment of eligibility, your home would be assessed to decide what work could be included. A company working on behalf of your local council, Combined Authority or Housing Association would do the survey and arrange any improvement work.

When would this happen?

Work will start in summer 2021 and must be completed by the end of the year.
