GRANTS (subventions ) FOR NEW BUILD

I am always chasing information for grants because this info is never easy to find and a lot of people miss out .

At the moment France is giving a lot of grants to help towards its electricity problems e.g. insulation of attics plus more efficient heating systems.

I am looking for info to see if there are any grants available for new builds as I have friends who are just starting on this process . Any help would be welcome we are in Dept 16 Poitou Charente .

Thanks for any help Celia Lougher
