Home Upgrade Grant - HUG

We're offering grant-funded insulation for low income households through our Home Upgrade Grant

HUG funding is available to you whether you own or privately rent your home, subject to the eligibility criteria. Permission will also be required from your landlord if you’re in private rented accommodation.

Find out if you're Eligible

To be eligible for the scheme:

  • The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for the property must have a rating of E to G (in some cases D rating). 
  • Live in the council areas of Harrogate, Craven, Selby or York
  • The total household income must be less than £30,000* annually (subject to eligibility)

If the property does not have an EPC please get in touch and we may be able to arrange one, if all the other eligibility criteria is met.

How much funding is available per property?
