Apply for a subsidy for roof, floor and external wall insulation 2022

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.

Because of the large number of applications for this subsidy and a new computer system, it can take a longer time before you receive a response.

You can apply for a subsidy until 31 December 2022. A total budget of € 750,000 is still available for this subsidy. Once the subsidy amount has been used up, the measures will stop. You will no longer be able to submit an application. This page will be updated accordingly.

Who is it for?

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

      Conditions

      • You can apply for the subsidy once the work has been done.
      • The subsidy is for homes built before 1992. The subsidy does not apply for the insulation of extensions constructed after 1992. Homes built as of 1992 are usually well insulated.
      • The work must be carried out according to the information and instructions on the page 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 quotation with an explanation to this email address: bouwecologie@denhaag.nl. The municipality will then check if you have the right to a subsidy.
      • Per property you can apply for a subsidy 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.

              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 subsidy in 2020), 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.
