The Green Homes Grant scheme was launched by the Government in September 2020 and eligibility has recently been extended to end in March 2022.
Owner occupiers (excluding new-build properties) can obtain a grant to cover two thirds of the cost of installing new insulation or low carbon heating up to a maximum of £5,000. These are defined as primary measures - if you install at least one primary measure, your voucher can be used to help cover the cost of secondary measures such as double glazing and draught proofing.
For more details about eligibility and the measures that are covered by the grant please go to https://www.gov.uk/guidance/apply-for-the-green-homes-grant-scheme
Whatever is planned, applicants must first get a quotation from a Trustmark approved trader who will also complete the work.
