The grants under the 5th call of the Adapta Madrid Plan will contribute to improving accessibility inside homes for people with disabilities and/or rare diseases, and in commercial premises located on the ground floor. In addition, the novelty this year is a specific line of aid to improve accessibility in the doorways of residential buildings.

The fifth edition of the Madrid City Council's Adapta Plan provides aid for the adaptation of housing to the needs of people with sensory disabilities and reduced mobility, as well as those with rare diseases. In its new edition, the plan will allocate four million euros to improve the quality of life and favour the autonomy of these people, with the financing of actions to adapt and eliminate architectural barriers in homes, as well as to improve accessibility in commercial premises located in residential buildings. The application period is open until 15 July 2024.

Among the many eligible expenses are the adaptation of doors or corridors to allow passage with support products for reduced mobility; the installation/adaptation of bars, handrails, stair lifts, interior ramps and other mobility aids; the installation of home automation, environment control systems and digital home technologies that contribute to favouring the personal autonomy of people with disabilities; the installation of doors with double opening locks to prevent being locked in, automatic doors, proximity card on the access door, voice reminders and/or opening automation systems by remote control or another device.

In the case of premises located on the ground floor of residential buildings, eligible expenses include, among others, access adaptation works to eliminate architectural barriers, including the installation of accessibility improvement devices such as ramps, stair lifts, elevating platforms, automatic door openers incorporating motorised mechanisms or other accessibility devices.
