The environment, going green and reducing the carbon footprint are all topics we hear often in the news, and it’s quite likely that you’ve heard mention of the Green Homes Grant. This guide will give you insight as to what it is and what it means for you.

 

What is the Green Homes Grant Scheme?

In early July 2020, Chancellor Rishi Sunak outlined a new Government scheme called The Green Homes Grant. This will give homeowners across England the chance to apply online for vouchers worth up to £5,000, which they can give to their chosen tradesperson to buy the materials needed. Whilst low-income households can claim 100% of the improvements cost, up to a maximum of £10,000. The scheme will give over 650,000 eligible homeowners the opportunity to make energy-efficient home improvements, and help cut energy bills - saving hundreds of pounds each year. 

 

“The Green Homes Grant is a vital part of our plan for jobs as we secure the UK’s economic recovery from coronavirus. This is going to be a green recovery with concern for our environment at its heart.”

 

“It will help to protect and create jobs, while also saving people money and cutting carbon.” said Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer
