The Affordable Warmth Scheme addresses the effects of fuel poverty and energy inefficiency. The scheme is directed at low income households.
It is a targeted scheme aimed at those areas where levels of fuel poverty are highest.
The scheme may be available to you if you:
- live in Northern Ireland
- own and occupy your property as your main home
- have your day / life interest in the house
- rent from a private landlord, and
- have a total annual gross income of less than £23,000
It is not available for tenants living in social housing; you are not eligible if you are a Housing Executive or housing association tenant.
The Scheme provides grant aid to improve energy efficiency measures within your home.
The property must not be a
- holiday home
- bed & breakfast
- commercial establishment
We work with local Councils to deliver the Scheme throughout Northern Ireland.
Grants are subject to the availability of funding.
