My bid to the DECC Green Deal Communities Fund includes the ability to provide top-up funding for hard-to-treat measures such as solid wall insulation. 

The ELENA funding for the RE:NEW Support Team cannot be spent on capital measures.  However, a key role of the Support Team is to identify additional sources of funding should it be required.
