HUG2 Funding

Home Upgrade Grant (Phase 2)

The Home Upgrade Grant (HUG) is a government funded scheme, aimed at domestic properties that are heated by any means other than gas. HUG funding can provide energy efficiency upgrades and low carbon heating to homes in England. These home improvements can make your home more energy efficient and help you save on energy bills.

HUG Phase 2 (HUG2) is a successor of HUG1 and will run between April 2023 and March 2025.

Who Qualifies for HUG2 Funding?

HUG2 funding can be accessed by low-income households who have a low Energy Performance Rating (EPC D, E, F or G). Funding is available for both homeowners and private tenants.

HUG2 funding is distributed by Net Zero Hubs in England; Community Home Solutions are working in partnership with Staffordshire County Council and the Midlands Net Zero Hub to support residents across Staffordshire to access the £10.5m funding pot.

Eligible households could benefit from the installation of FREE energy efficiency improvements such as Loft Insulation, Cavity Wall Insulation, Low Carbon Heating or Solar PV.
