Apply for a subsidy for roof, floor and external wall insulation 2021

Are you going to insulate your external wall, roof or floor on the ground floor of your home? Apply for a subsidy from the municipality.

You can apply for a subsidy until 31 December 2021. A total budget of € 500,000 is available for this subsidy. Once the subsidy funds have been used up, the measures will stop and you will no longer be able to apply. This will be published on this page.

Who is it for?

  • private homeowners and private landlords
  • homeowners associations (VvEs) (in Dutch)
  • organisations with the Public Benefit Organisations (Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling, ANBI) status

      Conditions

      You have until 31 December 2021 to apply for the subsidy. There is € 500,000 available. Once this amount has been used up, you will no longer be able to apply. You can find this on this page.

      • You can apply for the subsidy when the work has been done.
      • The subsidy is for homes built before 1992. The subsidy does not apply for the insulation of extensions after 1992. Homes built as of 1992 are usually well insulated.
      • The work must be carried out according to the information and instructions on page the How to insulate your roof or floor (in Dutch). Do you think that the work should be done differently? Then first contact the municipality. You can send your price estimate with an explanation to this email address: bouwecologie@denhaag.nl. The municipality will then check if you have the right to a subsidy.
      • You can apply for a subsidy for one address multiple times for different insulation work on the roof, floor and/or external wall of your home.
      • Is your home designated as a monument? Then you need to apply for a permit for work on the roof. This does not apply to work on the floor.

            Subsidy for roof, floor and external wall insulation 2021

            You can apply for the subsidy once you have received the final invoice from the builder, or once you have completed the project yourself. You apply for the subsidy using the accountability form.

            Download the accountability form below. Send the completed and signed form to subsidies@denhaag.nl together with the documents needed for the application (in Dutch).

              How long does it take?

              The municipality will notify you within 12 weeks after you submitted your application.

              Because of the large number of applications for this subsidy (and for the 2020 subsidy), there is a delay in processing the applications. It can take longer before you receive a response.

              Good to know

              In addition to the subsidy for roof, external wall and/or floor insulation, you can also apply for the subsidy for green roofs. The combination of roof insulation with a green roof on top makes for a well-insulated home.
