The Sustainable Warmth Competition is awarding funding to local authorities to help them upgrade energy inefficient homes of low income households in England.

The new programme will combine Local Authority Delivery Phase 3 (LAD3), which supports low-income households heated by mains gas and Home Upgrade Grant Phase 1 (HUG1), for low-income households with homes off-gas grid.

The focus will be retained on upgrading the worst insulated owner-occupier and private-rented homes with energy efficiency installations and low carbon heating.

Bids should be for a minimum of £250,000.

All local authorities and Local Energy Hubs in England can apply for funding to improve the energy efficiency of homes inhabited by low-income households living in their area.
