Uttlesford housing repair assistance

Apply for a grant to help with repairs or extra insulation.

All applicants need to be in receipt of a means tested benefit to receive the grant, which is up to £3000, or up to £5000 in the case of mobile homes where thermal insulation or energy efficiency measures are carried out in addition to repairs.

For additional work over the grant limit, an interest free loan of up to £7000 can be given, which becomes repayable once the property is sold or the applicant no longer lives there.
