Within an approved authorization in the State Budget, repair and energy grants can be made by The Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland for improvements in the condition and quality of individual apartments and apartment buildings. The purpose of the grants is to improve the energy economy of residential buildings. Grants are aimed at reducing both energy consumption and emissions of greenhouse gases, and are also awarded for the inclusion of renewable energy sources. The grant covers up to 15 - 25 % of the approved costs and are awarded by the local authority.

Due to the overall reductions in the Government’s budget, these subsidies have now been partially ceased.
