Green Home Grants Scheme – 15/03/2021

If you are a homeowner or residential landlord, you can apply for a Green Homes Grant voucher towards the cost of installing energy efficient improvements to your home. The voucher must be redeemed, and improvements must be made by 31 March 2022.

You may be eligible if you live in England and:

  • You own your own home
  • You own your own park home on a residential site
  • You’re a residential landlord in the private or social rented sector

You are unable to get the Grant for newly built homes which have not been previously occupied.

With regards to what the voucher can be used for, it is split into primary and secondary measures.

Primary measures

The voucher must be used to install at least one primary measure:

Insulation

  • Solid wall insulation
  • Under-floor insulation
  • Loft insulation

Low carbon heat

  • Solar thermal

Secondary measures

If you install at least 1 primary measure, your voucher can be used to help cover the cost of secondary measures. The amount you get towards the cost of secondary measures cannot exceed the amount you get for primary measures.

You will only be able to redeem vouchers for secondary measures once you have installed a primary measure and redeemed the vouchers for that measure:

Windows and doors

  • Draught proofing
  • Double or triple glazing
  • Secondary glazing
