Workshops for disabled people; application for funding for investment costs
The Free State of Bavaria promotes the creation, expansion, modernization and equipping of vocational training and workplaces for people with disabilities in workshops for disabled people.
Workshops for disabled people are facilities for the participation of disabled people in working life who, due to a disability, cannot or cannot yet work in the general labor market.
Purpose of the funding
The purpose of the funding is to ensure that sufficient up-to-date places are available in workshops for disabled people for vocational training and employment. This will also enable severely disabled people to receive vocational training and gain employment.
Recipients of funding
Eligible to apply are the sponsors/operators of recognized workshops (umbrella organizations of the voluntary welfare sector and their affiliated organizations as well as other legally responsible and non-profit sponsors, other private sponsors as well as sponsors under public law such as associations, foundations, local authorities).
Eligible costs (within existing expenditure ceilings) are the costs of new construction, conversion, expansion or modernization measures and equipment or the purchase of a building for the purpose of operating a workshop for people with disabilities, its conversion and repair.
Type and amount of state funding
The share of funding from the equalization levy generally amounts to 65% of the eligible expenses and is usually provided in the form of a grant (80%) and a loan (20%). In addition, cost ceilings that provide for a maximum subsidy per workshop place must be observed.
The initial contact is made in writing or by telephone with the regional office of the Center Bavaria Family and Social Affairs named under "Responsible for you".
There, the initial coordination and consultation on the content, goal and eligibility of the planned project takes place. In the further procedure, the coordination with the other sponsors and cost units of the facilities (district, Bavarian regional office of the Federal Employment Agency) as well as the Bavarian Ministry of Social Affairs takes place.
For the initial contact with the Inclusion Office, an informal description of the measure with an explanation of the reasons for the need is sufficient. In the further procedure, the documents listed under "Required documents" are necessary for the examination of the eligibility requirements.
Applications for investment cost funding are submitted once a year by the Inclusion Office to the Bavarian Ministry of Social Affairs for inclusion in the respective annual funding program. A prerequisite is a preliminary construction and technical review by the relevant departments with the involvement of the responsible Inclusion Office. This preliminary examination must be completed by approximately the end of January.
The duration of the procedure up to the registration of the measure (cf. explanations under "Deadlines") varies and depends on the quality of the planning by the executing agency as well as the inspection capacities of the specialized agencies. Usually, a period of six months to a year can be expected.
Inclusion of the measure in the annual funding program depends on its urgency and the budget funds available for this purpose; waiting times of several years may arise.
Please select a location in "Localization" so that the address of the responsible authority can be filled in.
- Consultation, application and approval procedures are free of charge.
