I previously applied to the Green Homes Grant, can I apply to Sustainable Warmth?
Yes, your property must meet the energy efficiency requirements set out above to qualify.
The grant is provided on a first come first served basis prioritising the most inefficient properties and application alone doesn't guarantee receipt of measures which are subject to survey, availability and funding being deliverable by end of March 2023. The scheme will prioritise the lowest energy efficient homes.
Due to anticipated demand, we may not be able support all applicant households in this round of funding however previous applicants will be notified of new initiatives as they become available.
Funding is provided via Sustainable Warmth Competition administered by the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The fund consists of Local Authority Delivery and Home Upgrade Grant designed to support household on and off the gas network respectively and is subject to average spend caps and caps on the proportion of properties with an EPC rating of D that can be supported.
