Are you eligible for an energy-efficiency grant scheme worth up to £10,000?

The Government’s Green Homes Grants are now available via Cosy Homes in Lancashire (CHiL), the Affordable Warmth initiative created to reduce fuel poverty across the county.

CHiL can help residents to access the scheme which covers the cost of installing energy saving measures, such as solid wall insulation and renewable heating technologies.

This funding does not cover gas boiler replacements.

The grant scheme is available to owners-occupiers, private tenants and social tenants, although a contribution from a landlord will be required for all rented properties.

Paul Lloyd, Pendle Council’s Environmental Health Manager, said: “We’re really encouraging all residents who are struggling to heat their homes in winter to get in touch and find out if they’re eligible.

“It takes minutes and costs nothing to see if you meet the criteria.

“The scheme closes in December so find out if you’re eligible today!”

Properties eligible for the grant are those with a low Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D, E, F or G.

If the property meets the criteria then the household must also be eligible to access the grant.

Eligible households must have a combined income of no more than £30,000 with savings of less than £16,000. Anyone in receipt of benefits is likely to qualify.

The quickest and easiest way to find out if you’re eligible is to visit - or call 03306 061 488.
