Green Homes Grant

As part of the government's green recovery plan, homeowners in England can check eligibility for vouchers worth up to two-thirds of the cost of hiring tradespeople to upgrade the energy efficiency of their home – the maximum contribution will be £5,000, or for those on lower incomes, a 100% grant up to £10,000 will be available for certain work. 

The vouchers are now being issued, and will help pay for energy efficiency improvements that will help cut energy bills and potentially save families hundreds of pounds a year.

You can do your part to reduce your carbon footprint, and help Three Rivers reach carbon neutrality by ensuring your home is energy efficient, and installing low carbon heat measures.

Below is information for homeowners and landlords on how to take part in the scheme, and how trades people can get accredited to carry out the works.

The grant scheme is available until the end of March 2021.
