The ECO4 scheme is a fantastic project, pushed by the government to assist households throughout Britain that it considers to be living in fuel poverty. Low income and vulnerable families are also likely to meet the qualifying criteria, while there are plenty of reasons you may be eligible to claim funded measures including insulation, boiler upgrades and more.

Read on as UK Energy Management answers some of the most prominent questions about heating funding, eligibility and all things sustainable energy.

What Are The Main ECO4 Qualifying Benefits?

If you claim benefits of any description, there is a likelihood that you could receive a grant for installation of energy-efficiency measures. Though these conditions alter with every cycle of the scheme, the core offering remains the same. If you are claiming any of the following, there is a strong chance we may be able to help you:

● Income based Jobseekers allowance (JSA)

● Income related Employment & Support Allowance

● (ESA) Income Support (IS)

● Pension Credit Guarantee Credit

● Working Tax Credit (WTC)

● Child Tax Credits (CTC)

● Universal Credit (UC)

● Housing Benefit (new eligible benefit under ECO4)

● Pension Credit Savings Credit (new eligible benefit under ECO4)

● Child Benefit

I Fit Criteria For ECO3, But Am I Still Eligible?

Of the changes between ECO3 and ECO4, there are particular groups who no longer qualify for government support – although exemptions can be made upon enquiry. The most prominent groups to miss out on automatic funding within this latest instalment include those who claim:

● Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

● Attendance Allowance

● Carer’s Allowance

● Constant Attendance Allowance

● Disability Living Allowance (DLA)

● Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (IIDB)

● Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

● Severe Disablement Allowance

Free Help? What’s The Catch?

Though at first, this scheme may sound too good to be true, there is no catch to be found. Therefore if your circumstances align with the government’s eligibility criteria for the current scheme instalment, the ECO4 grant will be accessible to you. If you are either a homeowner or a private tenant, you can still apply for funded government assistance, and won’t have to pay a penny.
