Apply for a Home Upgrade Grant
This grant is for non-mains gas heating systems and aims to provide energy efficiency upgrades and low-carbon heating solutions for low-income households living in the least energy efficient homes.
Who can apply
You will need to meet the following eligibility criteria:
- the gross household income must be below £31,000 per year
- a property Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rated at D, E, F or G. Check your property Energy Performance Certificate rating
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 need to make a financial contribution to the work and have a portfolio of four properties, or less.
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.
Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and North Warwickshire Borough Council have been awaded funding to deliver the Home Upgrade Grant Scheme, Phase 2 (HUG2). This will help to tackle fuel poverty and progress us towards the UK’s 2050 Net Zero commitment
