Richmond residents can apply to get up to £170 towards their annual energy bill through the Council’s Fuel Grant Scheme.

Applications for the latest round of grants close at midnight on 31 March 2022.

Who is eligible

This scheme is open to anyone on a low income, including pensioners.

You are still eligible if you receive help with your fuel costs from anywhere else, including new COVID-19 funds.

Proof required

To support your application you must provide evidence of the following:

  • Proof of any state benefits or pensions received, such as copies of bank/post office statements or DWP award letters
  • A copy of your most recent Housing Benefit/Council Tax Reduction decision notice if you are entitled to either
  • A copy of a letter, bill or statement from your energy supplier showing your account number

How it works

The Fuel Grant Scheme only has a limited amount of money to pay for these grants, so applications will be assessed depending on individual circumstances.

All applications will be processed after the closing date of 31 March 2022. We are unable to notify successful applicants until after the closing date.
