If you’re a homeowner, you can apply for a Green Homes Grant voucher, which would go towards the cost of installing energy efficient technologies and improvements to your home.
Such improvements may include home insulation to reduce energy use, or low-carbon heating installation to lower your home’s carbon dioxide production.
WHEN IS THE DEADLINE?
The voucher must be redeemed and improvements completed by 31st March 2021.
HOW MUCH IS THE VOUCHER WORTH?
Vouchers will cover two-thirds of the cost of eligible improvements, up to a maximum government contribution of £5,000.
However, if you, or someone in your household, receive certain benefits, you may be eligible for a voucher which covers 100% of the cost, with the maximum value of the voucher being £10,000.
You may be eligible if you live in England and:
