Family care; application for funding

Family care helps to support families in special emergency and crisis situations and to avoid the out-of-home placement of children. The sponsors of family care stations can receive a grant within the framework of project funding.



Family care is an important component for supporting and stabilizing the family in crisis situations. Family care occurs when the person who has previously run a household with at least one child, usually the mother or father, can no longer do so themselves or alone, for example, due to illness, pregnancy, recuperation or a stay at a health resort. The qualified family caregiver takes over the care and upbringing of the children as well as the care of the household.


The purpose of the funding is to facilitate the continuation of the family nursing stations by means of government grants and to ensure a nationwide supply of qualified family nurses, also through binding forms of cooperation.

Recipients of grants

Beneficiaries are voluntary welfare associations and their affiliated organizations, non-profit foundations and private providers, insofar as they are responsible for family care stations and employ qualified staff there.

Eligible expenses

Personnel and material expenses of the family care station.

Type and amount

The state grant is awarded as a fixed-amount financing within the framework of project funding. The possible funding lump sum is based on the eligible specialist employed in the family care station. The lump sum for a full-time specialist employed according to need amounts to up to 7,800.00 euros per year.


The individual requirements for the funding of a family care station are regulated in section I. 1. of the guideline for funding in the "Bavarian Care Network". In particular, the specialist must have completed training as a state-recognized family nurse or state-recognized village helper or have completed further training as a specialist for family-supporting household management.


The application must be submitted in writing to the Bavarian State Office for Nursing.

Special notes

Funding is provided without legal entitlement within the limits of the available budget.


Applications must be submitted by December 31 of the year preceding the funding year.
