Opportunity to bid into the Warm Homes Fund

We have an opportunity to bid into the Warm Homes Fund as a consortium, so if you’re interested in receiving funding, and have off gas properties, then please let us know and we can register your interest.

The project will be supported by Foundations, and will work with our partners, including E.ON who will provide ECO3 funding to support and top up funds received from the Warm Homes Fund, and also allow additional measures like lofts and cavity wall insulation to be carried out.

There may also be an opportunity to bid into separate Redress funds for any other smaller energy measures, energy advice / support. Guidance notes on this element will be released in the coming weeks, but there are likely to be targets around home visits, fuel poverty, training etc.

The timescales for the next funding round are fairly tight, with the fund opening on the 3rd December and closing on the 8 February 2019. If successful, funds will be released in April 2019, and the project will run until May 2019.

If you’re interested then all you need to do at this stage is just firstly let us know, and secondly give us an idea of the number of off gas properties that you think may need support, over a 2 year period. This can include off gas properties that are close to the gas network that we can get gas connected (for free using separate funding), and a gas boiler installed under the WHF; and also Air Source Heat Pumps for any properties too far from the gas main. With heat pumps we can also secure additional RHI money, meaning that heat pumps will be 100% funded.

This is a great opportunity to secure an additional funding pot for heating measures, if you have any queries, please just let me know. Please supply your expressions of interest to info@filt.org.uk
