More Stratford district residents may be eligible for heating help

Stratford Editorial 26th Mar, 2024   0

MORE residents across Stratford district can now apply for help to keep their homes warm.

The income eligibility criteria for Home Upgrade Grant – phase 2 funding has increased to £36,000 a year. Some residents who may not have applied previously because they were over the first £31,000 threshold may now be eligible.

And even though it is now getting warmer, residents are encouraged to apply for grants as soon as possible because there is a three to six month time frame from application to installation.

Stratford District Council works alongside local energy experts Act on Energy, to help administer all winter warmth grant funding.

SDC leader Coun Susan Juned said: “We really hope the changes to the eligibility criteria mean more residents will benefit from the grant. This is an extremely helpful scheme, and we encourage as many people as possible to find out about it and apply.”

Act on Energy has been helping Midlands’ households with energy advice for 25 years and can provide residents with free, impartial advice about what funding might be available.
