Boiler Grants and Universal Credit. Home owners who receive Universal Credit may qualify for Boiler Grants to replace broken mains gas boilers.
Or, if your home has never had a central heating system installed before, home owners and private tenants who receive Universal Credit may qualify for a Central Heating Grant to help install central heating.
If you have a broken mains gas boiler OR your home has never had central heating before AND you expect to receive Universal Credit for a short period of time – you should apply immediately.
If you return to work after the Coronavirus restrictions are removed and you stop receiving Universal Credit, you will no longer qualify for boiler grants or central heating grants.
