Affordable Warmth Obligation (HHCRO)
Also known as the Home Heat Cost Reduction Obligation, this obligation provides free boiler and insulation grants to those who receive certain means-tested benefits. It aims to reduce fuel poverty amongst low-income households by ensuring that heat is generated as efficiently as possible and is prevented from escaping from the home.
The latest phase will run until March 2022 and gives households that missed out on the initial two ECO programs an opportunity to benefit from warm housing policies.
To qualify for ECO grants, there are certain benefit related criteria the customer must meet. If the customer receives one of the following benefits then they may be eligible for a grant to help fund an ECO measure.
