Green Homes Grant scheme

The new £2 billion Green Homes Grant scheme will fund up to two-thirds of the cost of energy saving home improvements in England.

What is the Green Homes Grant scheme?

Under the Green Homes Grant Scheme, homeowners and landlords in England will be able to apply for vouchers worth up to two thirds of the cost of upgrading the energy efficiency of their home. For most people, the maximum contribution will be £5,000. Households on low incomes will be eligible for up to 100% funding, up to a maximum of £10,000.

Find out whether your home is eligible for a grant via the UK Government website.

Who can get Green Homes Grant scheme vouchers?

Only homeowners, including owner occupiers and social/private landlords, in England will be able to access the scheme.

How do you get the vouchers?

Advice and support on energy efficiency improvements is available to homeowners from the Simple Energy Advice service.

Simple Energy Advice will suggest appropriate home improvements that homeowners may be able to apply for support in funding.

Once the works are agreed, you can apply for a voucher on the government's Green Homes Grant page.

What work can you do with the Green Homes Grant Scheme vouchers?

The Green Homes Grant Scheme will provide vouchers to install one or more energy saving measures, including:

  • solid wall, under-floor, cavity wall or roof insulation
  • air source or ground source heat pump (where the home has, or is having installed wall and loft insulation)
  • solar thermal (where the home has, or is having installed wall and loft insulation)
