GDHIF first release vouchers to be extended to 31 March

The Department of Energy & Climate Change is extending vouchers from the first release of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) until Tuesday, 31 March.

The one-off extension applies to GDHIF vouchers that have an expiry date before 31 March and have not yet been redeemed and is expected to effect around 3,900 voucher holders, including those holding vouchers that have already expired.

For the first release of the GDHIF, which was open to applications between 9 June and 24 July 2014, vouchers worth up to a maximum of £7,600 were on offer.

Up to the end of December 2014, 11,061 vouchers have been paid and 13,613 measures installed, with £54.3m claimed.

The extension is effective immediately and will apply automatically to eligible voucher holders – a new voucher will not be issued.

Vouchers from the second release of GDHIF, which opened to applications on 10 December 2014, will not be affected and will be valid for six months as per the voucher’s expiry date.

Details of further releases of funding will be announced on a quarterly basis, with the next release and announcement expected later this month or in early March.

  • It's good that the vouchers are being extended - and it's great that the Green Deal scheme is back, though for a limited time.

    It's key to get your assessment booked-in first thing - as it won't be around for long, so if you're in the North West, then STL Heating's Green Deal team will be able to help you - so don't miss out !
