Cavity wall insulation not possible

In practice, the municipality of Leeuwarden cannot currently provide a subsidy for cavity wall or roof insulation from outside. Bat and bird species can nest in the cavity walls and roofs of a home. Disturbing and killing these species and destroying their habitats is prohibited on the basis of the Environmental Act and the Living Environment Activities Decree. We are working on ways to make insulation possible in a nature-friendly way. As soon as this is possible, more information about the possibility of a subsidy will be available on this page. If you would like to know more, you can visit the website about nature-friendly insulation of the province of Fryslân.


  • You own and live in the home in the City of Leeuwarden.
  • Your home has energy label D, E, F or G.
  • Does your home not have an established energy label? Then it must have been built before 1992.
  • Your home has a maximum WOZ value of €268,000 (reference date January 1, 2022).
  • Your household income does not exceed €48,625 gross per year.
  • You can use this subsidy once per address/household.
  • You first apply for a subsidy. Only then you carry out the measure.

Amount of the grant

You can apply for a maximum subsidy of €2,500. If the measures together cost you less than €2,500? Then you can apply for a maximum of the total amount of the measures.

What do you do once the energy-saving home measures have been implemented?

You must submit a request for confirmation. You do this by returning the claim form that you received with the decision on your application. You also add the invoices and/or proof of payment to this claim form.


In the case of a do-it-yourself initiative and you have made the home more sustainable yourself, please add to this declaration form:

  • A before and after photo of the completed energy-saving housing measures. This photo shows the date the photo was taken.
  • An invoice (receipt) or agreement of the purchased materials with your name, address and place of residence on it.
