Britain’s poorest homeowners are least aware of the government’s Green Homes Grant even though they have the most to gain from the scheme which is due to launch this month.
Research has found that only 45% of the least well-off households are aware of the initiative compared with 65% of those in the wealthiest group.
That is despite the fact that low-income households could get grants of up to £10,000 for energy efficiency measures, while funding for those who are better-off will be limited to vouchers of up to £5,000.
Local authorities are calling on the government to promote the scheme.
They are urging the National Residential Landlords Association to encourage its members to use the programme to benefit tenants.
