Apply for a Sustainable Warmth Fund grant

The Sustainable Warmth Fund is a government scheme that Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and North Warwickshire Borough Council have secured for residents to make homes more energy efficient and warmer.  It is also known as the Green Homes Grant.

What funding is currently available

  • Funding is only available to customers with non gas heating systems

Apply for a Sustainable Warmth Fund grant

Funding is limited, and the grant is awarded on a first come, first served basis.

What is the fund for

To improve the energy performance of properties within both boroughs. The measures put in place will make properties warmer and also reduce energy costs.

Who can apply

You will need to meet the following eligibility criteria: 

If your property does not have an EPC, you can still apply. If your EPC is A,B or C, unfortunately we will cancel your application.

If you are a private landlord, your tenant must meet the criteria and make the application. You will also need to make a financial contribution to the work.

If you are a private tenant, ensure your landlord is willing for work to be done and they understand they will have to make a financial contribution before you apply for the grant.

What happens next

If your application is successful, we will pass your contact details onto our appointed contractor, who will contact you to arrange a retrofit assessment of your property. The retrofit assessment will identify if your home is suitable for works such as: 

  • loft insulation
  • cavity wall insulation
  • external wall Insulation
  • Air source heat pumps
  • solar panels

Once a retrofit assessment is carried out there will be additional visits from the installers who will quote for the measures directly to the Nuneaton and Bedworth Council. We fund 100% of the works. Some properties may be able to have multiple measures installed. Once works are installed we will carry out a further energy performance certificate at the property to measure the improvements for the fund provider.
