Council to host Green Homes Grant drop-in event
19 April 2021
Richmond Council will host a virtual drop-in webinar event on Wednesday 5 May at 6pm to provide residents with more information on the Green Homes Grant and how eligible households across the borough can apply for up to £10,000 worth of funding to improve the energy efficiency of their homes.
The Green Homes Grant is a scheme for homeowners and landlords to support the installation of energy efficient and low-carbon heating improvements to their homes. This is a separate scheme to the Government Green Homes Grant voucher scheme which is no longer open for applications.
The Green Homes Grant provides funding to support with energy efficiency and low-carbon heating solutions for low income households in the most energy-inefficient homes across the borough.
Eligibility for the Green Homes Grant has recently been expanded meaning more homes in the borough are now eligible for funding to improve the energy efficiency of their homes.
To be eligible for the grant households must have a household income of £30,000 or less and live in a property with an EPC rating of D, E, F or G (the four lowest EPC ratings). Residents can check the EPC rating of their homes. Both homeowners and landlords are eligible to apply for the scheme.
The event will be hosted by Richmond Council’s Policy and Review Manager, Andrew Hagger who will be joined by the Managing Director of RetrofitWorks, Russell Smith. At the event residents will be able to learn more about the scheme, newly eligible households who can now apply for a grant and will be provided with the opportunity to ask any questions they might have.
The event will cover who is eligible for a Green Homes Grant, the process of applying and what the home improvements will look like. The event will be recorded and made available on the website for those unable to attend on the night.
