Green Home Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme Bid

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is inviting LAs, working with their local partners, to apply for funding to be used to improve the energy efficiency of low income houses. LAs have been asked to come forward with previously developed proposals or new proposals that meet the desired outcomes of the scheme.

The LA Delivery scheme aims to raise the energy efficiency of low-income and low EPC rated homes (those with Band E, F or G) delivering progress towards reducing fuel poverty, the phasing out the installation of high carbon fossil fuel heating and the UK's commitment to net zero by 2050.

Applications will be accepted from the 4th of August to 12 noon on the 1st of September 2020 with award announcement at the end of September for delivery up to March 2021.
