Do I qualify for the Home Upgrade Grant?

To qualify for free insulation, you must live in a property in York, Harrogate, Craven, or Selby. Your household income must be less than £30,000 or you must be in receipt of some form of government benefit.

If you have an EPC for your home, the energy rating needs to be D, E, F or G. If you don’t have an EPC, don’t worry! You can still apply and we may be able to arrange one for you if you meet the other eligibility criteria.

All grants are subject to a home survey and confirming eligibility.

How much will I receive under the grant?

For homeowners, the Home Upgrade Grant covers the full cost of the insulation work and survey.

Private tenants can expect to receive a grant of up to £5,000 for insulation measures. The landlord must contribute a minimum of one-third of the cost.

How do I apply for the Home Upgrade Grant?

To apply please contact the City of York Council on 01904 552300 or betterhomes@york.gov.uk

This grant is available for a limited time, on a first come first served basis, so don’t delay!
