What is the Green Homes Grant Scheme?

The Green Homes Grant (GHG) scheme was launched by the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to enable homeowners to become more energy efficient whilst supporting the job market from the after effects of COVID-19.
 
As a result, there has been £2bn of funding allocated to support this scheme; £1.5bn available to homeowners and £500 million through Local Authorities.
 
This grant has now been extended to March 2022. Those who are on income support can receive up to £10,000. Homeowners who are able to pay, can apply for the grant and receive 2/3 of the total cost of the installation capped to £5,000.
