Who Qualifies For This Grant?

Many people can qualify for this free boiler grant, there are many conditions that make you qualify directly to the grant. On the other hand, there are some conditions that you might need extra benefits to be eligible for it. For example, many low income families qualify directly for this grant without the need of any extra benefits.
