Green Homes Grant
The Green Homes Grant scheme was a Government-funded energy-efficiency home improvement scheme for people in England. It offered vouchers of up to £5,000 for home-improvements (or up to £10,000 for low-income households). Households had to pay a third towards the cost of the voucher while low-income households didn't have to pay towards the cost.
The Green Homes Grant Scheme closed on 31 March 2021 for new applications.
