The Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland awards lift grants from the state’s funds for building a new lift in an old block of flats that does not have a lift in its stairwell. A stairlift is not considered as being equivalent to a normal passenger lift. The maximum amount of lift grant is 45% of approved total costs relating to building a lift or lifts. The city may, within budgetary limits, award an additional grant of 10% for building a lift in an old block of flats.
