Housing allowance initial application

Service Description

You can receive housing benefit as a tenant (so-called rent subsidy) or as an owner for owner-occupied housing (so-called burden subsidy).

Whether and how much housing benefit you receive depends on how high your income is and how high your rent or your monthly burden is in the case of home ownership.

How many people live in your household also plays a role.

The amount of the housing allowance can vary from region to region.

The rent or burden is only eligible up to certain maximum amounts.

The maximum amounts depend on the local rent level, the so-called rent levels.

If your financial situation or living circumstances have worsened during the grant period, you can apply for an increase in housing allowance at any time.

You are obliged to notify the housing allowance authority immediately of any changes.

This also applies to changes that may lead to a reduction in the housing allowance.
