If you find it hard to heat your home and you are in receipt of benefits or are on a low income, you might be eligible for national funding to improve the energy efficiency of your home. This could help improve the comfort and warmth of your home, cut your fuel bills and reduce your impact on the environment.

Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery (LAD) schemes

The Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery (LAD) schemes are national schemes available to eligible homeowners and landlords to help improve the energy efficiency of their homes and help reduce fuel poverty and carbon emissions.

To be eligible for the LAD schemes, households must:

  • Have a household income of £30,000 or less, or £20,000 or less after housing costs
  • Live in a property with an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) rating of D, E, F or G (the four lowest ratings)

Both homeowners and private landlords are eligible to apply for the scheme. For rental properties, the income requirements relate to that of the household, not the landlord’s income. If you are an owner occupier, you do not need to contribute any funding. If you are a private landlord, you will need to contribute a minimum of one third of the costs.

These schemes can fund a range of energy efficiency measures including insulation, double glazing, renewable heating systems like air source heat pumps, and solar panels.

LAD1B and LAD2 are now closed for applications, but stay tuned for more news on the next phase of LAD funding. As and when additional grant schemes are made available we will update this page so please check back.
