Financial aid for housing energy renovation
As part of a renovation project, individuals may be eligible for ﬁnancial aid. For insulation, heating changes or a full renovation... criteria relating to the property, the individual’s situation and technical characteristics of the installations must be met in order to obtain ﬁnancial aid for housing renovation. Different aid can sometimes be cumulated for the same work.
The energy cheque, exemption from property tax and pension fund aid can also be combined with the aid set out in this table.
* MaPrime Rénov’ is capped so that the cumulative amount of aid does not exceed 90% for homeowners with very low incomes, or 75% for homeowners with low incomes.
** The CITE is capped so that the amount of CITE aid does not exceed 75% of the eligible spending actually incurred by the household.
As part of its energy renovation policy, the government has overhauled the aid system to make it simpler, fairer and more efﬁcient. The transformation of tax credits for energy transition (CITE) into a single premium (MaPrime Rénov'), which launched on 1 January 2020 for homeowners with low and very low incomes, was an initial step. The reform will be ﬁnalised in 2021 by extending MaPrime Rénov’ to all homeowners (regardless of income). Households that are not currently eligible can already start the process of submitting their applications as of 1 January 2021.
As part of the stimulus plan, there will be exceptional premiums to help fund works to insulate housing, strongly encouraging comprehensive and ambitious enovations. MaPrime Rénov’ will also be open to condominiums and landlords.
ADEME and the FAIRE network offer a ﬁnancial aid simulation tool to help you when applying for your property’s energy renovation.
