Local Authority Support LA Flexible Eligibility (LA Flex)
Under the ECO Scheme Flexible Eligibility arrangement, local authorities are permitted to identify and designate households as eligible under the Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation.
Local Authorities can set their own criteria to decide who should qualify for Energy Efficiency Measures – Funding Boilers, Funding First Time Central Heating, Funding loft insulation, funding Cavity Wall Insulation, Funding Underfloor Insulation, and More …
The criteria varies by Local Authority but generally includes the below:
- Health– Health can be a major factor when assessing how much heat is required in your home and the following factors are considered: Cardiovascular conditions, Respiratory diseases, Cancer, Diabetes and Permanent disabilities.
- Age– Older householders can be particularly affected by exposure to the cold so any household will be considered where someone over 60 years of age live there.
- Type of Property– Some homes require more heat than others due to their particular characteristics and properties with an EPC rating of F or G may qualify.
