The Green Deal Home Improvement Fund (GDHIF) was closed to SWI applications less than two days after reopening last week after all the funding available for SWI under phase 2 was allocated.

Figures released by DECC on 12 December revealed that 5,882 applications including SWI were received in just under 30 hours totaling £24 million, which was the amount ring-fenced for SWI.  Only 196 applications were received for two other measures and DECC confirmed in a press release that the scheme remains open for this type of application with almost £5.8 million still available.  Further releases of funding will be announced on a quarterly basis with the next tranche expected in February 2015 and INCA is liaising with DECC regarding the ‘recycling’ of funding from phase 1 vouchers which are not redeemed.
