    Green homes grant eligibility

    Handymen

    How can I find out if I am eligible for the Green Homes Grant? Does it depend on where you live? What work is covered by this grant scheme? How much could I receive?

    Eligibility
    If you submitted an application for a voucher by 31 March 2021, you may be eligible for a voucher if:

    you own your own home (including long-leaseholders and shared ownership)
    you own your own park home on a residential site (including Gypsy and Traveller sites)
    you’re a residential landlord in the private or social rented sector (including local authorities and housing associations)
    You cannot get the Green Homes Grant voucher for newly built homes that have not been previously occupied.

    If you’re claiming other grants or funding
    Energy Company Obligation (ECO)
    You cannot claim a Green Homes Grant voucher towards the cost of a measure that has also had funding under the Energy Company Obligation (ECO). You can claim both ECO and Green Homes Grant as long as they are each for different measures – for example, loft insulation and cavity wall insulation.

    Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
    You can claim both the Domestic RHI and the Green Home Grant for a renewable heat installation. You must claim the Green Home Grant voucher first and then notify Ofgem that you have used it when you apply for accreditation to the Domestic RHI. The Green Homes Grant will then be deducted from your Domestic RHI payments.

    Local Authority Delivery Scheme
    If you have already received a grant from your local authority as part of the Local Authority Delivery Scheme, you are not eligible for a Green Homes Grant voucher.

    If you’re a landlord
    State aid
    The Green Homes Grant counts towards the total de minimis state aid you’re allowed to get over a 3 year period. You must check that you will not exceed the de minimis state aid threshold of €200,000.

    Energy efficiency standard
    If you have applied for a voucher for a private rented sector property, you need to either provide:

    proof that you have met this standard
    proof of an exemption"

    "What is the Green Homes Grant?
    The Green Homes Grant was announced by the Government in July 2020 to help kickstart the economy in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

    Up to 600,000 homes are expected to benefit from the scheme which provides a grant of up to £5,000 for homeowners and landlords in England to cover at least two-thirds of the costs of certain energy-saving improvements for the home. The poorest households could access up to £10,000 in total - more on this below.

    Applications have been live since September 2020 and grants can be claimed in full until the end of March 2022.

    It was originally scheduled to end in March 2021, but low initial uptake coupled with the need to keep traders working throughout 2021 means it was extended in November 2020.

    Two important things to note: vouchers are valid for three months after their issue date (although they can be extended before expiry) and all vouchers will expire on 31 March 2022, so work must be concluded by then.

    Running until March 2022, the scheme provides up to £5,000 of vouchers for most homeowners, with the low-income homes eligible for extra support of up to £10,000.

    Only certain energy improvement measures are valid, and applicants must follow a strict process for their vouchers to be valid.

    Plus, only registered traders can be hired to do the work and it must be carried out no later than 31 March 2022."

    "he small MURB must conform with the definition set out by the Greener Homes Grant initiative
    A single EnerGuide evaluation must be undertaken of the entire structure (or address) and not on a unit by unit basis.
    Homeowners within the MURB need to organize themselves"
