SEFTON residents can now apply for £5,000 of energy-efficient home improvements funded by the government as part of a new scheme.
The Green Homes Grant offers a range of energy saving measures at home including insulation for floors and roofs, double or triple glazing and draught-proofing.
Under the terms of the grant, the government will offer vouchers to cover up to two thirds of energy efficient home improvements – worth up to £5,000.
The Green Homes Grant also offers vouchers up to £10,000 for low income families and is available to some landlords as well as homeowners.
