Through Keep Herefordshire Warm, Marches Energy Agency currently have access to a pilot project offering emergency grant funding to residents with broken gas heating systems (or those with intermittent faults). To be eligible, residents must be homeowners. Replacements are 100% fully funded and are working on a turnaround of 7 days.
In order to qualify, householders are required to be in receipt of a means tested benefit or have a household income of £21,000 or less (after rent or mortgage deduction), limited savings (<£8,000 for a single person or £12,000 for multiple person household) and have a vulnerability (aged 60 or over, children under 5 or health conditions / disability). KHW advisors can run through this criteria with residents in more detail.
This funding is only available until 31st March – so please circulate as appropriate.
