Green Homes Grant Extension

The government has announced that the Green Homes Grant (GHG) will be extended by one year. You now have until the end of March 2022 to apply for a voucher. This could be good news for people struggling to find local Trustmark installers to complete works within the original short timescales. 

GHG is a new government voucher scheme in England, worth about £2 billion, to help households install energy efficiency measures. Vouchers up to £5,000 are available to owner-occupiers and landlords. They are required to make a minimum contribution of 33% of the cost of upgrades.

Low - income owner-occupiers can apply for vouchers of up to £10,000 with no household contribution required. Funding (£500 million of the £2 billion) will also be available to Local Authorities in England to support the upgrade of homes for low-income households in their areas.
