Improving homes to fight against inequalities
The Barcelona City Council is well aware that renovation is a key tool for fighting against inequalities and improving people’s quality of life. It is for this reason that it accompanies those projects which provide an improvement in the quality of both homes and buildings. Barcelona is, in fact, one of the cities of our geographical setting with the greatest public coverage of rehabilitation of the private housing stock.
Rehabilitation of homes has an immense impact on our comfort, health and wellbeing, marks the difference in energy efficiency and improves the quality and safety of the housing stock. In addition, the promotion of rehabilitation benefits the local economy and creates employment, since it requires specialised labour.
The aids to rehabilitation offered by the Barcelona City Council and the Barcelona Housing Consortium promote inhabitability, accessibility and energy efficiency both inside homes and in buildings as a whole.
The principal new feature of the 2021 announcement in regard to the previous year is that the subsidies are granted on the basis of competitive concurrence. This is a procedure which takes into account a series of criteria and assigns a score to each action comprising the application. Based on the score obtained, the applications for subsidies will be classified in decreasing order, admitting them in this order until exhausting the budgeted endowment of the announcement.
If you would like more information, ask for a prior appointment at your Housing Office.
