More applicants wanted to take advantage of home energy efficiency grants
Low-income households in the Derbyshire Dales can apply now for free grants to make their property more energy efficient.

If you know someone who might benefit from this, please point them to the District Councils’s website. In particular, this page has more information and details on how to apply.
