Can I get a grant to remove my asbestos roof?

The national grant scheme for asbestos roof removal ended on 15 December 2018, but you may still be able to get a grant for this purpose from your local or provincial authority.

End of grant scheme for asbestos roof removal

Until recently, it was possible to take advantage of a grant scheme for removing asbestos roofs. The total budget (€75 million) has now been spent and, as a result, no further applications are being accepted. You can read more about the grant scheme on the website of the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl).

New fund to replace grant scheme in 2019

The grant scheme for asbestos roof removal was ended on 15 December 2018 because the €75 million budget was exhausted. It is no longer possible to apply for a grant. The Housing Promotion Fund, provincial and local authorities, banks and central government are setting up a new fund to replace this grant scheme.
