Social Housing Schemes
There are various social housing schemes that are available, here are just a few of them listed below.
LAD (Local Authority Delivery) Scheme
The LAD scheme aims to upgrade the energy efficiency rating of approximately 50,000 homes across the country, saving consumer money in rising energy costs in the process. Each local authority will programme their own scheme for their area, and will involve insulation and renewable installations.
HUG (Home Improvement Grants) Scheme
The Home Upgrade Grant (HUG) helps both qualifying homeowners and private renters to improve the energy efficiency of their homes where those homes are off gas-grid, i.e., not served by mains gas. HUG is funded by the government’s Local Authority Delivery scheme. The grant covers part or all the cost of the installation and can include but may not be limited to:
– Loft Insulation
– Underfloor insulation
– Wall Insulation
– Solar Voltaic
– Low Carbon Technologies
SHDF (Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund) Scheme
Wave one of the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund (SHDF) opened 23 August 2021 and closes 15 October 2021. The Government has proposed a £3.8bn Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund over a 10-year period, to improve the energy performance of social rented homes. A £62m fund was announced in 2020 followed by £160m for the first wave of the SHDF in financial year 2021/22 delivering to January 2023.
