What is the green homes grant? 

Green Homes Grant

The Chancellor announced on 8th July a £2bn Green Homes Grant in England.

Under this scheme homeowners and landlords will be able to apply for a voucher to fund up to two thirds of the cost of hiring tradespeople to upgrade the energy performance of their home (up to a maximum contribution of £5000). Low income households will be eligible for up to £10,000 government funding.

The new scheme will see the government fund up to two-thirds of the cost of home improvements of over 600,000 homes, supporting over 100,000 jobs in green construction. The aim of the scheme is to help homeowners become more energy-efficient, but also to help boost the economy during the coronavirus pandemic by creating jobs.

How much can I get?

  • For most homeowners, the vouchers will be worth about two-thirds of the cost of the energy-efficient improvements, up to a maximum of £5,000 per household.
  • There are also boosted £10,000 vouchers for low-income households, where the homeowner won’t need to pay anything towards improvement costs.
  • This will be for those receiving at least one income-based or disability benefit.

Primary improvements:

Vouchers can be used to undertake one or more of the following enhancements:

  • External wall insulation; internal wall insulation; cavity wall insulation
  • Under-floor insulation: solid Floor
  • Under-floor insulation: suspended Floor
  • Loft insulation; flat roof insulation; room-in-roof insulation
  • Air source; ground source heat pump
  • Solar thermal
  • Biomass boiler

Secondary improvements

  • In addition, households can use their voucher for further energy-saving measures. These include one or more of the following:
    • Draught proofing; double or triple glazing; secondary glazing, when replacing single glazing
    • Energy-efficient replacement doors
    • Hot water tank thermostat; hot water tank insulation; heating controls

The grant scheme is available until the end of March 2022 and applies to England only.

Who is eligible for the voucher?

  • The Government has confirmed all owner-occupied homes, including long-leaseholders and shared ownership properties, will be eligible to use the general £5,000 voucher scheme.
  • Landlords of both private rented and social domestic housing can also use the scheme, along with park homeowners.
  • New build domestic and commercial properties cannot get the grant.
  • The Government says households will be offered a list of accredited local tradespeople in their area who are registered with the scheme – and only these tradespeople can carry out the necessary works.
  • To be part of the scheme, tradespeople must register for TrustMark or Microgeneration Certification Scheme accreditation. SE Plumbing & Heating are accredited by both the Microgeneration Certification Scheme and TrustMark.

How can I get my voucher?

  • To qualify for a voucher, the homeowner or landlord must complete the following application form here, but should read the guidance first here.
  • The grant scheme is available until the end of March 2022 and applies to England only.
  • The Treasury has said it hopes the scheme will help pay for improvements in more than 600,000 homes across England.
