Greater Manchester Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme
Money towards energy efficiency home improvements
Oldham Council has secured funding through the Greater Manchester Combined Authority to run the Government’s Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme by working with energy company E.ON.
The scheme aims to:
- Increase your home’s energy efficiency rating while reducing your energy bills.
- Deliver cost effective carbon savings to support the UK’s target for net zero by 2050.
- Support clean growth and ensure homes are thermally comfortable, efficient, and well adapted to climate change.
Oldham Council is encouraging eligible residents in Oldham to apply for a grant of up to £10,000 towards the cost of installing energy efficiency measures in their homes.
How much can you get?
For owner-occupiers, the grant will cover 100% of the cost of the improvements up to a maximum government contribution of £10,000.
For landlords, the grant will cover two-thirds of the cost of eligible improvements, up to a maximum government contribution of £5,000.
