Training grants

To qualify for a grant, you must meet these criteria:

  • be 16 years or older,
  • and provide all the requested documentation to support your application.

If you're a Bolton at Home tenant and would like to apply for a grant, you must:

  • have a clear rent account or be maintaining an agreement to pay off any outstanding debt,
  • and abide by your tenancy agreement, with particular reference to antisocial behaviour and garden maintenance.

Will a training grant affect my benefits?

You will need to check if your grant affects the benefits you receive. 

How can I set up an arrangement to pay off my arrears?

If you are having problems with your rent account, please contact a member of our Income Management Team or our Debt and Money team on 01204 328000.
