As of November 2020, North Norfolk residents will be able to check if they are eligible for grants to help them heat their homes.
The Green Homes Grant will be implemented by the Norfolk Warm Homes Partnership, to support fuel poor residents reduce heating costs and improve the energy efficiency of their homes by the end of March 2021. Insulation measures available include solid wall insulation, cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, air source heat pumps and underfloor insulation.
More information on how residents can qualify for the grants is expected in November 2020.
Cllr Nigel Lloyd, NNDC’s Portfolio Holder for Environmental Services, Climate Change & Environment, said: “As the weather closes in for the winter months, now is a good time to take a close look at what measures can be taken in our homes to keep the warmth in and save money on fuel bills. I am delighted that NNDC will be pointing our residents in the right direction to apply for grants to improve their home energy rating.”
Karen Strandoo Norfolk Warm Homes programme Manager, said:
“Norfolk Councils have done a fantastic job leading the fight against fuel poverty for Norfolk residents and this next round of funding will help us not only to continue this work during this economically unstable time, but ensure the solutions work hard for the environment too.”
The Norfolk Warm Homes Partnership, a collaboration between Norfolk Councils, has already made a significant impact on the region’s residents, helping over 1,600 households receive central heating grants, and achieving over £2 million in benefits, savings and advice for households in fuel poverty in Norfolk.
The fund has been made available through the Government’s Green Homes Grant and has been secured a part of the £200m Local Authority Delivery competition.
