How it Works

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.

These grants are available to people receiving any of the following benefits:

1. Child Benefit (Income related See Table 1)
2. Child Tax Credits
3. Working Tax Credits
4. Universal Credits
5. Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
6. Income Support
7. Pension Guarantee Credit
8. Disability Living Allowance
9. Personal Independence Payment
10. Attendance Allowance
11. Carer’s Allowance
12. Severe Disablement Allowance
13. Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefits
14. War Pensions Mobility Supplement
15. Constant Attendance Allowance
16. Armed Forces Independence Payment
