Last year, it took only 24 hours for the Sustainable Social Real Estate (DUMAVA) subsidy pot to empty. A new application round will start soon and the first property owners are already in the starting blocks to apply for the subsidy. To avoid missing out, good preparation is important. What is required for a successful subsidy application for the DUMAVA? CFP consultant Youp successfully guided several clients through the application procedure and offers some tips.
The first and most important tip is: Be on time! Youp: “Applications are processed by date, so it’s really important to have everything ready on time. The application round starts on 1 September 2023 and I recommend submitting your application right then. If you take that as a basis, now is the time to start preparing.”
According to Youp, if you want to claim the DUMAVA subsidy, you need at least these four things for a successful application:
“In the case of DUMAVA, you get 30% subsidy for one to a maximum of three sustainability measures. Do you have more ambitious plans? If you start a comprehensive sustainability project where you make three energy performance jumps, all measures are subsidised at 30%. This may be worth considering.”– Youp van der Zande, consultant at CFP Green Buildings
It sounds easy, but for many property owners it is difficult to obtain all the insights and documentation required for the application. This is why CFP assists various clients in applying for subsidies. Youp: “We successfully helped a big medical centre with their DUMAVA application. They wanted to embark on a large-scale roof renovation, with roof insulation, green roofs and solar panels.”
The award of the DUMAVA subsidy has now made it possible to implement the renovation for the entire medical centre in the short term. That’s 50,000 m2 of roof that can now be made sustainable.”
