Government project: MZG subsidy and increased support for thermomodernization of municipal flats

The introduction of the MZG subsidy (the housing resource of the municipality), increasing the support for investments from the Subsidy Fund and increasing the amount of the thermo-modernization and renovation subsidies – provides for the draft law to improve the living conditions.

On Thursday 2 June, RCL published a government bill to amend certain laws to improve living conditions. in the principles of financing the construction and renovation of municipal buildings.

As indicated in the RIA, the project is primarily the implementation of activities related to the implementation of the National Plan for Reconstruction and Increasing Resilience (KPO) both under the subsidy part (concerning the replacement of heat sources and improvement of energy efficiency in residential buildings ) and in the loan part (concerning investments in the construction of apartments) intended for low and middle income households, taking into account energy efficiency).

The project includes the introduction of a thermomodernization grant, which provides increased support for deep and comprehensive thermomodernization. After agreements with the European Commission, the subsidy is 10%. costs of the thermomodernization project.

The project also mentions a RES grant, which consists of supporting investors who purchase and install renewable energy sources in their buildings, allowing a partial or complete change of the energy source in the building. As part of the negotiations with the European Commission, it has been agreed that the subsidy will be 50 percent. Project costs.

Grant MZG

In addition, the project provides for the introduction of the MZG subsidy (municipal housing resource), intended to improve energy efficiency in buildings from the municipal housing resource.

The condition for obtaining it is that, before or in the context of the implementation of a thermomodernization or renovation project, a connection to a central heat source has been made in the building to which this project relates, the energy sources have been replaced by renewable sources, high-efficiency cogeneration is used or that heat sources have been converted to low-emission solid fuel heaters (excluding boilers).

“As part of the negotiations with the European Commission, it has been agreed that the KPO grant will be 30% of the investment costs and will be in addition to the current co-financing of 50% or 60% (historic buildings). This equates the intensity of the support for the renovation of such buildings with the intensity of the support provided under other municipal housing programs (implemented from the Grant Fund) ”- we read in the justification of the project.

Higher support for investments from the Grant Fund

The project provides additional non-returnable financial support for investments made with support from the Subsidy Fund, consisting in the renovation of municipal flats inhabited by people at risk of energy poverty, provided that the heat source is switched to low-emission – support for inhabited properties located in buildings that fall under a thermo-modernization or renovation project, for which the municipality has received the MZG subsidy ”from the Thermo-modernization and renovation fund.

An additional aid amounting to 30% of the project costs applies to projects consisting of the renovation or reconstruction of living quarters in an inhabited building owned by the municipality or a sole proprietorship or part of such a building, provided that the municipality (intermunicipal association) acquires the right to a new RES subsidy from the Thermomodernization and Renovation Fund.

In addition, municipal projects related to buildings occupied by people at risk of energy poverty are rewarded in this way, provided that the heat source is changed to low-emission.

“In this case, increasing the financial support to municipalities (intermunicipal associations) from the current 50 to 80% of the investment costs is to stimulate and enable active participation in the process of ecological transformation, and thus lead to the improvement of the technical condition of municipal buildings” – wrote in the justification of the project.

The project also provides increased non-returnable financial support to local authorities for the construction of apartments with a higher standard of energy efficiency.

Both apartments are for middle-income households (support 25% higher than the support for the construction of flats in the basic energy efficiency standard in the context of the social and municipal housing support program implemented from the Subsidy Fund under the Financial Support Act for Certain housing projects – up to 60% of the investment costs), as well as for lower-income farms (support 15% higher than the support provided for the construction of flats in the basic energy efficiency standard under the social and municipal program housing that is carried out from the Subsidy Fund under the Financial Support Act for Certain Housing Projects – up to 95% of the investment costs).
