Action on Energy grants for low-income households
Through our Action on Energy partnership with other councils, we apply for and administer government grants to help low-income households install energy-efficiency improvements and low-carbon heating. Grants are available for homeowners and private landlords.
To find out about Home Upgrade Grants, please take a look at the Action On Energy Website.
Need a new boiler?
Through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, you could get a grant to cover part of the cost of replacing fossil fuel heating systems with a heat pump or biomass boiler. Fossil fuel heating systems include oil, gas or electric.
HDC accepts no liability under the ECO4 Flex or the HUG2 programme and remains impartial throughout the entirety of the process.
HDC does not endorse any installer company. Installer companies are private businesses registered with TrustMark, certification bodies and grant funders to deliver works under ECO4, ECO4 FLEX and HUG2.
We only carry out application verification checks for eligible residents to ensure installers working in our region under the schemes are fully compliant.
Any complaints or issues regarding the ECO4 Local Authority Flexibility scheme should, in the first instance, be referred back to the installer company. The installer company has a standard complaints procedure which they must follow to address the complaint.
