Advice on receiving E.C.O funding

Hi guys,
First-time poster here. 
Going through the past 11 months in the UK has been challenging for everyone. The numerous lockdowns that we've had have impacted us all differently. With the vast majority of the population staying in their homes more than ever before, it has meant that energy usage across the UK has shot up, and with it the carbon footprint.
And as the government has a goal of reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2030, they have started to seriously roll out some schemes to improve certain households' efficiency.
The funding comes in form of an E.C.O Grant, in essence, it's work done to make houses more efficient and warmer, all paid for by the biggest energy companies (think British Gas, SSE, etc) all because the government has mandated them to do so.
Below are some links which explain what the scheme is and tell you a little bit more about it too.
Full disclosure, I work on commission by finding people who will qualify for one of these grants.
