Take the steps set out below to submit a valid grant application.
Before submitting an application for a grant, and preferably before incurring the expense, you should make sure that the available budget is still sufficient. The Brussels-Capital Region spends a fixed budget on grants every year and this budget cannot be exceeded. There is always a (slight) risk that the budget is exhausted before the end of the year if energy grants prove very successful. Notwithstanding, you are allowed to combine as many grants as you'd like. So consult the website www.bruxellesenvironnement.be (website in French) regularly
The grants that you will receive are calculated on the basis of your income. To establish the level of your income you have to provide proof of the composition of your family, which is issued by your local authority, as well as a copy of your tax assessment for the year for which your income is requested. Note: if these two items are not provided, the amount of the grant is automatically calculated using the basic category, and you cannot appeal against this.
You can also benefit from a 10 % increase in the amount of the grant if the building concerned is located in an RVOHR/EDRLR zone (an area for increased development of housing and renovation).
After the date of the final invoice you have 12 months in which to submit your application (the postmark or e-mail date provide valid proof).
If the work is very extensive the application may be submitted before the general building work has been completed, once a certificate of practical completion has been drawn up indicating that the work to which the grant relates has been completed and paid for in full.
