Warmer Homes grants for energy-saving home upgrades
Southampton City Council has received funding from the Sustainable Warmth funding competition, which is administered by the Government’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), to offer funding to improve the energy efficiency of qualifying homes.
What is the funding for?
Grants can be awarded for home energy-efficiency measures including wall, underfloor and loft insulation, air source heat pumps and solar panels.
How the scheme works
The programme is open to owner occupiers and private rental tenants only. Funding is not available to local authority or housing association tenants. If you are in a private rental property, then a financial contribution from the landlord will be required and the landlord will be contacted about this following the application.
The programme is operating on a first come, first serve basis and funding is only available until March 2023, so be sure to get your application in now to ensure you don’t miss out.
Am I eligible?
You may qualify for the funding if the following statements apply:
Your home has an EPC rating of E, F or G.
You have a total household annual income of £30,000 or less (before housing costs/bills) OR your total household income is £20,000 AFTER housing costs (rent/mortgage).
You receive a means-tested benefit, or you meet the eligibility criteria specified in your local authority’s ECO flexible eligibility ‘statement of intent’.
If the above statements apply to you, please apply now or call the Southampton Healthy Homes team (Freephone) on 0800 804 8601.
