Private Housing Assistance

What does it do?

a range of assistance is available:

Do you need money towards improving your home?

Do you need help to continue to live independently in your own home?

Do you need additional security at home to help you feel safe?

Do you need help to keep warm?

Who it is for?

for families, older or disabled homeowners who need help to repair, improve or adapt their homes.

If you live in Eastbourne, you could get a grant or interest-free loan from £200 to £30,000 to help improve your home.

Are you eligible for Council Tax Benefit, Income Support, Pension Credit or other means tested benefit?

And are you either over 60, disabled, or have children under 16?

Some homeowners can benefit even if they do not fall into those categories - the Get it Insulated Grant for example.
