Household Support Grants to help those who are struggling this winter

Sent and written on behalf of North East Lincolnshire Council:

The Household Support Grant scheme, funded by the Department of Work and Pensions, is now open to North East Lincolnshire residents over 16 years of age to provide support to households in most need this winter as the economy recovers. The maximum grant available is £250.

To receive a grant the household must be able to show that it does not have sufficient income to afford food, energy and water bills. Funding can be used to support households who are struggling to afford wider essentials such as broadband or phone bills, clothing, and essential transport-related costs. To be eligible the household will need to provide evidence, including bank statements, that it has an income of less than £20,000 and have savings of less than £500.

Applications can be made through the following referral partners:

  • ConnectNEL
  • Carers Support (For Carers or customers on their database)
  • Foresight
  • Navigo (for Navigo service users only)
  • Citizen’s Advice
  • Lincolnshire Housing Parntership (for LHP tenants only)
  • Salvation Army (for Salvation Army residents only)
