Are you eligible for government grant for Boiler Upgrade if you are receiving DLA?

    Hello @dshah1912. Was this the boiler upgrade scheme you're referring to? I can't see anything about DLA in the eligiblity criteria. 
    Money Saving Expert have a page on Government Housing & Energy Grants which may have more information or others that may be of help to you.

    In or around 2014 I applied for a new gas boiler as my old one was just over 10 years old (home was built in 2003)
    The main condition, apart from being over 10 years old was that I was claiming Guaranteed Pension Credit Luckily I had a claim started in 2013 for just a few £'s a week.
    They fitted a new boiler etc which to this day works very well.
    Cost? Nothing, they even cleaned up after the work etc.
    A fantastic offer.  Not sure that this scheme is still ongoing.
