The Government has just announced an extension to the Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme where homeowners (both freehold and leasehold owner occupiers) and landlords can apply for vouchers for two thirds of the cost, up to £5,000, towards installing Energy Efficient and Low-Carbon Heating improvements in their homes.

Measures covered include Insulation of Walls, Floors and Roofs, Double or Triple Glazing when replacing Single Glazing, and Low-Carbon Heating like Air-source and Ground-source Heat Pumps.

Some homeowners on income-based or disability benefits (e.g. Pension Credit) may be eligible for vouchers covering the full cost of improvement, up to a
value of £10,000.

Instead of all work needing to be completed by the end of March 2021, the period has been extended to the end of March 2020, as demand for the Grant
meant Accredited Installers were all getting booked up.

The list of Recommended Installers has also been increased, so more local firms should now be available.

The Scheme will also help towards supporting 100,000 jobs in Green Construction across the country.
