Warm Front Suspends Grants

Warm Front grants suspended until April 2011.Warm Front provides support to vulnerable groups in, or at risk of, fuel poverty. This typically includes low income households and families, disabled and elderly groups. It provides a package of insulation and heating improvements up to £3,500 (or £6,000 where oil, low carbon or renewable technologies are recommended)). To qualify for Warm Front, applicants must either own their home or rent it from a private landlord. They should also be in receipt of certain qualifying benefits.

CERT funding is not affected by the suspension of Warm Front funding and grants are still available.
Energy suppliers will provide grants and offers to help you pay for energy efficiency measures and renewable energy technologies for your home. The key thing to note here is that you can take up CERT grants and offers from any energy company, regardless of whether they supply your gas and electricity. This could help reduce the amount of energy you use, reducing your CO 2 emissions as well as helping you to save money on your energy bills too.
