NGIA was formed in 2009 to aid and install the Government backed Warm Front scheme. What is the Warm Front scheme? The Warm Front scheme makes your home warmer, healthier and more energy efficient The Warm Front scheme provides heating and insulation improvements to households on certain income-related benefits living in properties that are poorly insulated and/or do not have a working central heating system. Qualifying households can get improvements worth up to Ј3,500 (Ј6,000 where oil central heating and other alternative technologies are recommended). You won't have to pay anything as long as the work doesn't cost more than the grant available. If the cost of the work is more than the grant available you'll have to make a contribution to enable work to go ahead. Work will not start without making sure you are willing and able to pay the difference.
