Warmer Homes programme

What is the Warmer Homes Programme?

Portsmouth City Council, in partnership with 22 other local authority partners, has secured funding through the Home Upgrade Grant (HUG) Phase 2 scheme, administered by the Government’s Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ), to offer funding to provide energy efficiency upgrades and low carbon heating to qualifying off-gas homes.

How the Warmer Homes Programme works

The programme is open to owner occupiers and private rental tenants only. Funding is not available to local authority or housing association tenants. If you are in a private rental property, then permission and a financial contribution from the landlord will be required and the landlord will be contacted about this following the application.

Funding is available until March 2025, so be sure to get your application in now to ensure you don’t miss out.
