"Due to budgetary constraints there are currently no Ceredigion funded housing grants available for repairs or renovation work until further notice, although there are still grants available for disabled adaptations which are subject to means testing.
However, there are grants for insulation, heating and renewable energy technology systems if you live in the Tregaron renewal area. (Contact the grants department for further information or call into the Tregaron office.)
Furthermore, there are grants available from other sources for insulation, heating and renewable energy technologies. Please refer to the Home Energy Efficiency section for more information.

Preventing homelessness is our priority and we can offer help whatever the reason:
The strategy is the product of a lengthy review and analysis of local housing circumstances and has relied upon extensive recent research into housing needs and housing conditions within the County.
The Ceredigion Community Safety Partnership recognises that Anti Social Behaviour is a problem that affects the quality of life of individuals, families and communities and may create an environment where more serious crime can take hold.
