Green Homes Grants Scheme

The Green Homes Grants scheme is a government funded initiative to provide homeowners with vouchers to use towards installing energy efficient measures in their homes, such as insulation or low carbon heating. The scheme is available in England only.

Homeowners in England can apply for vouchers that will cover around two thirds of the cost of measures up to a maximum of £5,000 per household. For those on low incomes and in receipt of eligible benefits, the full cost can be paid up to a maximum of £10,000 per household.

You can apply for the grant now through the Government website or check your eligibility first through the Government's Simple Energy Advice Questionnaire. The latter will allow you to create a personalised list of measures you might be able to get funding for. The results can be used to obtain quotes from accredited tradespeople, needed for the application. More information can be found on the Marches Energy Agency website.
