6. Council’s grant and loan schemes

We continue to provide financial assistance to eligible residents who need to make urgent improvements and repairs to their home. This includes energy efficiency improvements. Where other sources of funding are not available through schemes such as those above eligible residents can access financial help through the council. Similarly the council can help to meet the remainder of cost of works where there is a shortfall in external grant funding. This is particularly key to tackling fuel poverty, remedying category 1 hazards such as excess cold and to improve the Energy Performance Certificate ratings of privately rented properties. More information can be found in the financial help section.
