As the first step in preparing for the launch of SEEP in 2018, we offered funding for a range of SEEP pilot projects last year. Eleven local authorities are receiving over £9million of funding to carry out SEEP pilots in 2016-17. This investment started the process of demonstrating ways of delivering an integrated programme before the wider roll out from 2018. More information on the projects supported through the pathfinder fund in 2016/17 can be found here.
We are now inviting local authorities and/or their partners to submit new proposals for SEEP pilot projects for delivery by 28 February 2019. This second phase of pilot projects will further help the development of SEEP, contribute to the design of future programmes aimed at tackling fuel poverty and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and inform how future SEEP funding is best deployed to achieve Ministerial objectives.
