The European Investment Bank (EIB) will be supporting Sociedad Anónima Municipal Actuaciones Urbanas de Valencia (AUMSA), a municipal company owned by the city of Valencia, with a loan of up to €27 million to promote affordable public rental housing. Specifically,

the EIB loan will finance the construction of 323 new units, 85% of which will be in near-zero-energy buildings, and the rehabilitation of four existing ones across different locations in the city of Valencia. These investments will constitute a 54% increase in AUMSA's existing stock of affordable public rental housing.

The financing, under the framework of the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) as part of the Investment Plan for Europe, will help to create more than 450 jobs per year during the implementation phase.

Thanks to the support of the EIB and EFSI, AUMSA will enhance the flexibility and functionality of the housing market in Valencia, offering more options for low- and medium-income groups, thus helping a segment of the population that can have difficulty accessing housing. The operation will also contribute to the overall reduction of rental prices in the city, which have increased by 40% between 2015 and 2019, and will encourage the creation of businesses and additional activities, resulting in improved services and quality of life for residents.

The agreement, the first signed with AUMSA, targets different urban regeneration's objectives, including integrated urban development, social inclusion, energy efficiency (by reducing energy consumption and using renewable energies in the homes,) and climate action. The award criteria of the affordable public rental housing units will follow gender and social equality criteria.

The operation has been approved as part of the social and affordable housing investment platform in Spain approved by the EIB Board of Directors in June 2018, following similar approvals for Madrid, Zaragoza, Malaga and Seville.
