Latest phase of Green Homes Cashback scheme announced.Government Opportunities

Social landlords will now be able to apply for a share of £4.5 million in funding for energy efficiency measures as part of the Scottish Government’s Green Homes Cashback scheme.

The scheme provides funding to individual households and social landlords towards the cost of measures such as boiler upgrades and home insulation.

Additional Green Homes Cashback funding was announced in May, and from now, social landlords will be able to apply for their share of a £4.5 million pot of this funding.

Councils and Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) will be able to claim up to a total of £250,000 to help pay for energy efficiency improvements to their stock.

Housing Minister Margaret Burgess will announce the latest phase of the scheme later when she visits a housing development in Dunfermline that has benefited from investment under the Government’s Home Energy Efficiency Programme for Scotland (HEEPS).
