On 10 December 2014 applications opened for the second release of funds under the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund. Up to £30 million in vouchers have been made available in this release. The £30 million is split into two categories:

- up to £24 million for solid wall insulation; and

- up to £6 million for two measures from a list of home improvements available under the scheme.

The first category is now fully committed and no more applications will be taken for it, ensuring that there are sufficient funds to support all successful applications. The second category remains open, using an automated stop to prevent vouchers being issued once the funding has been committed. A further release of funds under the scheme is expected in February.
