In October 2018, caps were removed, which in turn allowed those who receive Child Tax Credit the chance to qualify for this grant. Best of all, there is no delay. This means you could possible claim it right now if you receive Child Tax Credit.
Normally, recipients receive around £545 in Child Tax Credit. However, you might also receive other benefits such as Severely Disabled Child Payments or Disabled Child benefits. Before you proceed with the ECO scheme 2020, make sure you double check your paperwork to see if you have been switched to Universal Credit.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a private tenant or a landlord, you can apply for the grant. However, tenants do need to get their landlord permission.
