Fuel grants

The Fuel Grant scheme is now closed to new applications. No new applications will be considered.

How it works

Richmond residents can apply to get up to £85 towards their annual energy bill through the Council’s Fuel Grant Scheme. Applications for 2020 are now closed.

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.

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.

What happens next

A letter notifying you of the outcome of your application will be sent to you after the closing date (Friday 27 March 2020). If successful, the money will be credited directly to your electricity or gas account. No cash alternative is available.
