Unlike ECO3 when a council would set out their own qualifying criteria, ECO4 has given councils 4 options to choose from. Once the Statement of Intent has been released from the councils, we will give you a list of which option(s) they chosen. Please find below the possible routes:
Option 1: SAP bands D-G households with an income less than £31,000. This cap applies irrespective of the property size, composition, or region.
Option 2: SAP bands E-G households that meet a combination of
two of the following proxies:
Option 3: SAP bands D-G households that have been identified by their doctor or GP as low-income and vulnerable, with an occupant whose health conditions may be impacted further by living in a cold
home. These health conditions may be cardiovascular, respiratory, immunosuppressed, or limited mobility related. This is because the Council has identified a positive correlation between households who suffer from long-term health conditions and living off a low-income, with living in poorly insulated homes.
Option 4: SAP band D-G households that are referred under Route 4: Bespoke Targeting. Suppliers and LAs can submit an application to BEIS where they have identified a low income and vulnerable
household, who are not already eligible under the exiting routes.
