Decent Homes Grants

These are means tested discretionary grants of up to £30,000 to bring homes up to a decent standard.

They are for essential repairs such as to:

  • Make the property wind and weather-tight, e.g., re-roofing
  • Replace old, unrepairable or inefficient boilers
  • Remove hazards from your property as identified by the Housing Health and Safety Rating System*

*This is the nationwide system by which Local Authorities assess the condition of a property.

Home owners and private tenants who have the responsibility of repairing the property can apply.
