Eco Grants

Who qualifies for an ECO Grant?

To qualify for a grant, you must own or privately rent the property. If you are a private tenant, you will need verbal permission from your landlord before making an enquiry. We cannot assist Council or Housing Association tenants, unless you own more than 50% of a Housing Association property.

Someone living in the household must receive one of the benefits listed on the left below. Pension Credit and Child Tax Credit qualify without additional components and the remaining four benefits require at least one of the additional elements shown on the right.
