Official statistics published on 18 November for the Green Homes Grant Voucher scheme describe the status of applications prior to 05 November.
As of 5 November, a total of 43,071 vouchers have been paid, with a Government contribution funding value of £197 million across 988 active installers. As of 5 November, 3,142 vouchers, where Green Home Grant measures have been installed, were awaiting payment.
Payment of the grant is a four-step process that requires the customer to confirm the work has been completed, the installer to lodge the work, the scheme administrator to undertake scheme checks, and then proceeding to payment. Timescales for this may vary.
The next statistical release will be published on 23 December 2021.
