Applications to the Home Heating Support Fund are now closed for 2021.
We are unable to process any applications submitted after 23:59 on the 31st of March 2021.
The final payments for this iteration of the Home Heating Support Fund will be paid before the 14th of April 2021.
Applications will be completed on behalf of applicants by trusted partners who provide accredited energy advice and/or approved money advice. Any evidence in support of applications must be retained by trusted partners for up to 6 years.
Referral partners will confirm that energy advice has already been provided and if debt support is being sought will also confirm that approved money advice has been provided.
The main method of application will be online.
Eligibility and Need
For all applications, both eligibility and need must be evidenced, and records will be kept of the outcome and supporting rationale by the referring agency. This must be retained by the referring agency for up to 6 years.
Due to nature of fund, applicants cannot be disconnected already. If this is the case, they should be redirected to a more appropriate funding source, such as the Fuel Bank Foundation. However, applicants will be under stress and in financial hardship.
Outcome of Application
Referral partners will be updated via email.
