Support with energy bills
Alternative Fuel Payment (AFP) scheme
In addition to the Energy Bills Support Scheme Alternative Funding (EBSS AF), the government has also announced the Alternative Fuel Payment (AFP) scheme.
This is for households that use alternative fuels (such as heating oils) to heat their homes and are not present on the mains gas grid.
This will be a one-off payment of £200. The government has yet to announce the timing, and who will be involved in the delivery, of this scheme.
