Green Deal Communities

£20 million of capital funding is available for Green Deal street/area based proposals. Applications may be submitted at any time from September to 31 December 2013 for a minimum of £1 million.
DECC is inviting local authorities (LAs), working with their partners, to come forward with ambitious and innovative street/area based proposals for funding. These proposal should aim to deliver Green Deal plans to as many households as possible. DECC funding can also be used to support households who choose to self-finance measures.

Proposals will be judged on:

  • the number and total value of Green Deal plans that will be delivered
  • their credibility eg LAs will need to demonstrate that they have secured Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) funding to compliment Green Deal financed plans and to have specifically identified the streets/areas targeted
  • their creativity in offering local incentives to drive demand
  • their sustainability in the long term (ie beyond the DECC funding) and
  • being consistent with state aid and procurement rules
