England’s Local Authorities Invited to Apply for New Phase of Home Upgrade Grants

Energy, Environment & Climate

03 October 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding is available for local authorities to improve the energy performance and heating systems of certain homes in England.

The Home Upgrade Grant (HUG) is a government-funded grant scheme that provides energy efficiency upgrades and low carbon heating to low-income households living in the worst quality, off-gas grid homes in England.

HUG 2, the second phase of the programme, is now open. It is awarding grants to local authorities for energy efficiency and clean heating upgrades in owner occupied and private rented sector fuel-poor homes.

HUG 2 will allocate up to £700 million, with funding expected to be delivered from early 2023 to 2025. Applications must meet a minimum funding proposal value of £500,000. There is no maximum funding level.

If local authorities are successful in their bid, they will use the funding to install energy efficiency measures and low carbon heating to eligible homes in their area. Measures could include, for example, home insulation with an air source heat pump if suitable. Upgrades should be tailored to individual homes so that the most appropriate measures are installed.

Applications will be assessed at two deadlines: 18 November 2022 and 27 January 2023.


How To Apply

Applications will be assessed at two deadlines: 18 November 2022 and 27 January 2023.
