Home Upgrade Grant Phase 2 (HUG2) is a government-funded local authority scheme that aims to tackle fuel poverty and support progress towards the UK’s 2050 Net Zero commitment.
HUG2 is targeted at homes that are not heated by gas. The scheme will provide energy-saving improvements and low carbon heating systems to the homes of people who struggle to pay their heating bills and keep their homes warm in the winter. These improvements will be made free of charge, and will help residents to keep their homes warm, while using less energy.
The Greater South East Net Zero Hub has successfully bid for HUG2 funding from the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero. The Hub will administer the scheme in the South East region of England, on behalf of a consortium of local authorities led by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority.
