Householders wishing to apply for Central Heating Grants should first of all complete the form on this website page.
We will call you back to let you know whether you qualify for first time central heating grants based on the information you provide.
We will then arrange a survey of your home and its existing heating system and the surveyor will complete the official grant application form on your behalf. Also, with your permission, an electronic check will be made with information from the Department for Work and Pensions that you receive one of the qualifying state benefits, tax credits or other allowances.
If you do not receive one of the qualifying benefits for central heating grants, we will check with your local council to see whether they can approve your application under ECO4 ECO Flex rules.
Your grant application is submitted to the ECO Scheme and if approved, money is allocated from the ECO Fund.
The ECO authorised installation company which arranged the free survey will carry out your central heating installation at a convenient time. They will then apply for your first time central heating grant to be paid to them from the ECO Fund.
