Under the LAD scheme, Local Authorities bid for funding to support low-income households in their region. £74million has already been allocated; the remainder of the budget will be allocated this financial year to 5 Local Energy hubs and over 200 Local Authorities, delivering energy efficient upgrades to around 55,000 homes.

As of 8th February, the Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme has received 71,953 applications. 22,165 vouchers have been approved and issued to customers; the value of these vouchers is £94.1 million.
