ECO+ Scheme

New £1 billion Great British Insulation/ECO+ Scheme

The grant schemes are changing all the time so you need to register for updates so you don’t miss out on all grant opportunities.

1. What is Local Authority Flexible Energy or LA Flex?

The scheme gives local authorities power to provide funds such as if someone has trouble receiving benefits or lives in cold homes- which are both at risk factors for health problems related to poverty. This LA Flex will be run by each individual council who can decide just how much funding they give out based on their need’s assessment.
 
The Crawley Borough Council has published their eligibility rules for the grant in a Statement of Intent, so residents can apply. This post will explain which residents within our district are eligible to apply and how much money is available!

2. What grants are available?

The types of grants available to residents living in the Crawley Borough Council area include:

Boiler grants are expected to be removed from the grant scheme in the next phase so you should apply for this grant as soon as possible.

3. Who is eligible for grants?

Everyone will benefit from the program- from the homeowner, tenant in a housing association and renters. The easiest way to see if you are eligible is to use our eligibility checker here.

Eligibility

There are 6 ways to qualify for a grant:

1. Receive a qualifying benefit
2. Receiving Child Benefit and meeting income rules
3. Income-based eligibility (for households that earn less than £31,000 per year)
4. Vulnerable eligibility
5. Health-related eligibility
6. Bespoke targeting

1. Receiving a qualifying benefit

This route to eligibility applies where a member of the household receives or has received a ‘qualifying benefit’. If the benefit isn’t a current claim (for example for households where they have gone back to work after the pandemic) providing the benefit has been claimed at some point within the last 12 months, the household will still be eligible for a grant.

Qualifying benefits include:

– Child Tax Credit

– Employment & Support Allowance (Income Based) – Income Support

– Housing Benefit

– Jobseekers Allowance (Income Based)

– Pension Credit Guarantee Credit

– Pension Credit Savings Credit

– Universal Credit

– Working Tax Credit

Note if you receive any of the following benefits you could qualify later in the scheme (or through the ECO4 Flex routes). We advise anyone claiming the following benefits to register for updates so you are the first to know when these benefits are accepted.

– Armed Forces Independence Payment

– Attendance Allowance

– Carer’s Allowance

– Constant Attendance Allowance

– Disability Living Allowance (DLA)

– Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit

– Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

– War Pensions Mobility Supplement

2. Receiving Child Benefit and meeting income rules

If you receive Child Benefit you could be eligible for the scheme but unlike the qualifying benefits above they would need to meet an additional income criteria.

The Child Benefit income criteria depends on the number of children in the household and also whether the claim is a single or joint claim.

The income limits are as follows:

Single parents

1 Child – £19,900
2 Children – £24,800
3 Children – £29,600
4+ Children – £34,500

Parents in a couple

1 Child – £27,500
2 Children – £32,300
3 Children – £37,200
4+ Children – £42,000

(figures updated to Ofgem’s Administration Consultation released on 13 June 2022)

If you are eligible through the Child Benefit route you should apply as soon as you can. The Government’s Green Homes Grant excluded Child Benefit recipients so potentially this eligibility route could be removed later in the the scheme.

3. Income-based eligibility

To be eligible through the income-based route your annual household income will need to be under £31,000. You will need to provide evidence such as bank statements and income information to confirm eligibility.

This is an ECO4 Flex route so it requires the applicants council to have published a Statement of Intent and to issue eligibility declarations.

4. Vulnerable persons eligibility

Vulnerable people can access grants if they meet two of the following criteria (1 & 3 can’t be used together):

1. Lives in a Lower Super Output Area

2. Receives Council Tax Rebate (excluding for single person discounts)

3. Householder has a disability, mental health condition, is over 65, school children or under 16 and pregnant women.

4. Receives free school meals due to a low income

5. Supported by a Council scheme described in a Statement of Intent

6. Households referred by a Citizen’s advice as struggling to pay gas and electricity bills

7. Households in energy debt

A medical practitioner will need to complete a referral form to confirm eligibility.

This is an ECO4 Flex route so it requires the applicants council to have published a Statement of Intent and to issue eligibility declarations.

5. Health-related eligibility

People with health conditions that are made worse by living in a cold home qualify.

These include:

– Cardiovascular diseases

– Immunosuppressed

– Mobility issues

– Respiratory conditions

A medical practitioner will need to complete a referral form to confirm eligibility.

This is an ECO4 Flex route so it requires the applicants council to have published a Statement of Intent and to issue eligibility declarations.

6. Bespoke targeting

Installers can target specific groups of people living in fuel poverty. Installers will approach you if your property is eligible through this route.

Crawley Borough Council

If you DON'T claim benefits, the criteria for identifying households in fuel poverty in Crawley Borough Council are as follows:

Criteria for Crawley Borough Council Fuel Poor Households

Low-Income Households

  • The household’s occupants are not in receipt of benefits (if in receipt of benefits, they are eligible under standard ECO Affordable Warmth criteria), and
  • The household’s income (after housing costs) is below the set threshold based on household composition, and
  • The household has savings of less than £10,000

High Energy Costs

  • The property is eligible for an ECO measure and,
  • The property has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D, E, F or G or
  • Where no EPC exists, a set of questions will be used to assess the likelihood of the property having high energy costs

Pound Hill North & Forge Wood
Langley Green & Tushmore

Bewbush & North Broadfield

The eligibility does not guarantee grants. To see if it’s a good fit for your project, read the full Statement of Intent!

5. How much could you get?

The amount of money you will be granted for your grant depends on a lot. The biggest factor in this calculation is how much heating your home needs now so that it can tell you roughly what to expect if there are installers available near where you live and want to heat up their residence.

The grants are currently available as follows (subject to survey and meeting eligibility rules):

Download your EPC

The grant will help with the cost of your installation and is paid directly to Registered Installer. A contribution towards costs can be expected, but it does not need to be repaid. The installer should explain what funding options are available before quoting a price for them if they’re necessary for advance so there’s nothing hidden from you first-hand!
