the attached guidance was issued today by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing And Communities, to help residents understand the support announced by the Government to help with energy costs and how it applies specifically to park home residents.
In summary residents, there are three types of support that residents will benefit from. These are the:
Energy Bills Support Scheme-Alternative Fund (EBSS-AF); – this will provide £400 to all residents
Alternative Fuel Payment (AFP): – this will provide a reduction in electricity bills from October 2022 to March 2023
Energy Bills Relief Scheme (EBRS) -this will provide a one off £200 payment to those who are not on mains gas grid and use alternative fuels such as LPG and heating oil.
Further details on each type of support is provided in the guidance however, IPHAS are advised that a lot of detail has still to be worked out on all three types of support however, we have been assured that the Departments involved are working at a very fast pace to ensure the support is delivered as soon as possible and in a safe and secure way.
