What are KfW subsidies?

Popular funding programs for modernization measures

  • Energy-efficient refurbishment (151/152): This program offers low-interest loans and investment grants for measures that improve the energy efficiency of residential buildings. This includes, for example, insulating walls, roofs and ceilings, replacing windows and doors and renewing the heating system.

  • Age-appropriate conversion (159): This program offers low-interest loans for measures that improve the accessibility of properties. It supports conversions that make access and living easier for older people or those with physical disabilities.
