Urban development; application for funding for renewal measures

The Free State of Bavaria, the Federal Republic of Germany and the European Union support cities and municipalities in carrying out urban renewal measures. Under certain conditions, the subsidies can also be passed on to third parties by the cities and municipalities together with their own share.

Description

Purpose

The purpose of urban renewal is to maintain, renew and further develop urban and local districts in terms of their function, structure and design. The Free State of Bavaria, the Federal Government and the European Union provide financial aid for urban renewal in various urban development programs.

The focal points of urban development funding are:

  • the sustainable strengthening of city centers and local centers in their urban development function, with special consideration of the concerns of climate protection and the protection of historical monuments, the provision of green infrastructure, and the design of a barrier-free community.
  • The reuse of areas, in particular of commercial, military or railroad areas lying fallow in central areas, for the establishment of residential and workplaces, community and follow-up facilities, taking into account their functionally sensible allocation (mix of uses) and the elimination of vacancies in favor of the creation of permanent living space.
  • Urban development measures to remedy social grievances.
  • Use of supra-local cooperation and networks to strengthen centers of all levels in rural areas.

Object

The object of funding is urban renewal measures such as redevelopment, development, urban renewal or Socially Integrative City measures within the meaning of the BauGB in a renewal area defined by the municipality as a unit (overall measure).

Recipient of funds

As a rule, the recipient of the funding is the municipality. It can on-lend the urban development funds together with its own share to third parties.

Eligible for funding expenditure

The determination of total expenses eligible for funding is based on the funding requirements and provisions contained in the urban development funding guidelines, e.g.

  • Preparation for redevelopment
  • Land readjustment measures (land clearance, construction/modification of development facilities, etc.)
  • Construction measures (modernization and repair)
  • Community facilities (as far as they serve the urban renewal)
  • Municipal support programs and funds (neighborhood funds)

Type and Amount

The urban development funds are provided as project funding in the form of earmarked grants

  • preferably as fixed-amount financing,
  • otherwise as share financing

granted.

The municipality is generally reimbursed 60 percent of the expenses determined as eligible for the individual measure. In total, the funding should not exceed 50 percent of the costs of the overall measure. The latter does not apply if a funding rate of 80 percent to 90 percent is permitted on the basis of separate regulations for measures.

Prerequisites

Urban development funds are granted upon application if the eligibility requirements of the urban development funding guidelines are met. The basic prerequisite is the participation of the municipality with an own contribution to the eligible expenses.

Owners/investors who want to implement an eligible project in a renewal area that meets the municipal renewal goals can apply to the city or municipality for cost reimbursement if they are not financially able to implement the measure on their own.

A measure may not be started before the subsidy has been granted.

The granting of urban development funds must be permanently displayed on construction signs and after completion of the projects, e.g. by information boards.

There is no legal entitlement to funding.

Procedure

The governments are responsible for consultation and approval.

The municipalities notify the governments of their funding needs in the form of applications for grants or, alternatively, notifications of need with prioritization. The governments decide on the approval of the projects within the framework of the financial assistance provided.
