Grants and funding

English regions have received millions in government funding to upgrade housing with high carbon emissions as part of the Local Authority Delivery Scheme (LAD 2), which ran until 30 December 2021. LAD 3 is now underway alongside the Home Upgrade Grant (HUG2).

Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council has received a share of this grant, with some of the social and private homes in most need in Hinckley and Bosworth identified for energy efficiency upgrades. This will reduce the level of carbon emissions from poorly-insulated housing in the borough and reduce household energy bills.

Individual home-owners on low incomes may be eligible to apply for a Green Homes grant via Leicestershire County Council if their energy efficiency rating is D, E, F or G. For more information please visit Green Homes Grant - Local Authority Delivery scheme (

Residents are invited to sign up to the Warm Homes newsletter ( to be notified of future funding rounds, as well as the latest advice and information supporting affordable warmth at home.
