The primary purpose of lot 1 is to provide funding for first time central heating measures.  Our expectation is that other industry schemes will be accessed to ensure that insulation measures can be funded and installed prior to the heating. Should there be a shortfall in funding for insulation measures, successful recipients can apply for ‘gap funding’ by contacting the WHF team and providing appropriate documentary evidence of the shortfall and costs actually incurred. The finances within the lot 1 bid document should only relate to the costs of installing first time central heating.
