The subsidies are open for application all year round. Further information on applying for energy subsidies is available on ARA’s website (in Finnish).

Renovation subsidies

ARA grants renovation subsidies for

  • the renovation of homes of elderly and disabled people
  • condition surveys of apartments and residential buildings with moisture and microbial damage and indoor air problems as well as for the costs of planning the renovations of such buildings.

In addition, housing companies can apply for

  • a lift subsidy for the installation of a new lift
  • an accessibility subsidy for removing impediments to accessibility
  • a subsidy for electric vehicle charging infrastructure, when the installation of charging points requires changes to the building’s electrical systems.

The subsidies are open for application all year round. Further information on applying for renovation subsidies is available on ARA’s website
