In May 2011, the Government of Lithuania approved an additional grant scheme for the residents of multifamily building, who intend to refurbish their buildings until the end of 2013 by using JESSICA financial instrument.
If residents renovate their multi-apartment buildings until 31.12.2013 and by this achieve the D class (according to Energy Performance Certification classification) as well as 40% lower heating energy consumption, the state gives an additional grant up to 15%. Altogether, the state finances up to 30% of all costs for energy efficiency measures. The Lithuanian government also will provide a support of 100 % for low income families. Furthermore, the residents of multifamily building can expect up to 100% state support for the preparation of technical documentation as well as for the project management and technical supervision.
