Additional Grants

There are additional grants in Hackney which may also suit your needs

General Repairs Grants (GRG)

This is a General Repairs Grant up to £20,000. It is available for people who own and live in their home and can be used to help make their home fit to live in, or assist with bringing it up to a reasonable standard of repair.

Examples of works that the grant may cover include:

  • Roof repairs
  • New roof
  • Repairs to guttering, rainwater pipes or brickwork
  • Window replacements
  • Help with damp proofing
  • New plasterwork
  • Electrical works

Please note, decoration and improvement works, such as new kitchens and bathrooms, are not covered by GRG.

Owners who have received previous grant aid from the Council (other than disabled facilities grant (DFG)) cannot apply for GRG.

External Works Grant (EWG)

This is a grant to help with external works up to a value of £5,000. This grant is only available for people who own their own home, and for works to the exterior of a house or flat which will make it weather tight.

Works may include:

  • Roof repairs or replacement
  • Repairs to guttering, rainwater pipes or brickwork

The work funded by this grant may fully resolve the issues at your property. Alternatively, the grant may provide emergency works required to prevent additional deterioration until further, more long term improvements can be carried out.
