Support centres for people with disabilities and post-employment day care facilities for adults with disabilities; application for investment support

The Free State of Bavaria supports so-called support centres for people with disabilities and day structure facilities for adult people with disabilities after working life (T-ENE) by granting facility providers subsidies for structural investments. In the support centres or T-ENE facilities, the employment, stimulation and activation of people with disabilities outside their home or residential group is to be made possible.



The funding is intended to enable the employment, stimulation and activation of people with disabilities outside their home or residential group in so-called support centres or T-ENE facilities.

Support centre visitors are people with disabilities who do not or not yet fulfil the requirements for employment in a workshop and who can no longer find a place in the support group of a recognised workshop for people with disabilities (WfbM) - grouped together or divided into individual groups in the work area.

T-ENE visitors are older people with disabilities who have come to the end of their working life, especially those who have left the WfbM or the Förderstätte. The aim is to provide them with assistance that meets their needs and enables them to organise their lives as individually as possible.

The support centres and T-ENE facilities are permanent integration assistance facilities.

Support centres are independent facilities of integration assistance which at the same time cooperate with a recognised workshop in order to prepare them for the vocational training area of the workshop, to mitigate the consequences of the disability, to participate in life in the community and to relieve the burden on the family.

T-ENE facilities are independent facilities of integration assistance that offer people with disabilities in old age the possibility to choose between different offers according to their personal needs, so that this stage of life can be shaped as self-determined as possible in the sense of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.


The (new) construction of support centres or T-ENE facilities is the object of the funding. The operation and ongoing (building) maintenance are not the subject of the funding. State subsidies are granted for support facilities in spatial connection with recognised workshops for disabled people (WfbM) or in spatial connection with in-patient residential places. In particularly exceptional cases, the construction of a spatially separate support facility is also eligible for funding, provided that it also cooperates with a recognised workshop.

The following are eligible for funding:

  • New construction, conversion, extension, fundamental modernisation (not refurbishment) and the equipping of support centres and T-ENE facilities,
  • Acquisition of a building, its conversion or repair.

Funding will not be provided for measures whose eligible expenditure does not exceed EUR 100,000.

Recipients of funding

Applications may be submitted by non-profit organisations with legal capacity.

Type and scope of funding

The funding is awarded in the form of a grant. The funding rate is up to 60% of the eligible expenditure. This is provided within the framework of funding which assumes a 30% contribution from the executing agency itself. Own contribution also includes funds from Aktion Mensch and similar funds granted to support own contribution.

The funding is provided in the form of project funding by way of partial funding VV No. 2.2.1 to Art. 44 Bavarian Budget Code (BayHO). The grant will be limited to a maximum amount at the time of approval.


The above-mentioned measures will be funded in accordance with the Bavarian Budget Code if, among other things, the following conditions are met:

  • Recognition of need and approval of the location by the supra-local social welfare agency;
  • Submission of a concept which meets the requirements of the disability sector, also from the point of view of inclusion, and of a space and function programme approved by the supra-local provider of integration assistance and the executive authority responsible for state funding, paying particular attention to the principle of economic efficiency and economy. As a matter of principle, multiple use of rooms and circulation areas with another facility must be dealt with separately in the room and function programme;
  • Adherence to the DIN standard for handicapped-accessible construction to the extent required for the group of persons;
  • Guarantee that the executing agency can properly operate and maintain a support facility or T-ENE facility;
  • Proof of securing the overall financing and at least 10% participation of the locally responsible districts.


Application and approval procedure

  • Contacting of the applicant with the responsible district administration for examination of the need question and the location as well as the subsequent determination of the need by resolution.

  • Notification of the proposed project by the applicant to the agency responsible for funding.

  • In the case of future application with funding for land acquisition: investigation of the proposed land prior to acquisition for its suitability as a site for a facility for the disabled and cost review by the appropriate agency and district. The suitability of the land depends on the type and extent of use and on the building regulations of the municipalities. For this reason, the suitability of the property should be coordinated with the municipal urban land use planning department as early as possible in order to clarify the requirements under planning law, such as the type and degree of use, urban integration, architectural design and development, in advance of the construction planning.

  • Preparation of a concept with a spatial and functional programme by the applicant.

  • Technical consultation with the developer and review of the concept and the spatial and functional programme by the responsible body and the district.

  • Determination of the spatial and functional programme in cooperation between the competent body and the district. This determination does not imply a funding commitment.

  • Entry of the applicant into the preliminary planning with cost-area determination and cost estimation according to DIN 276 as well as coordination with the approval authorities. The approval office also advises the executing agency on the basic technical and economic concept of the project and assesses the estimated expenditure.

  • The approval office acts in a coordinating capacity to secure the overall financing.

  • The approval office reports the project to the Bavarian State Ministry for Family Affairs, Labour and Social Affairs (StMAS) and, insofar as the approval offices for housing promotion at the governments, the state capital Munich, the cities of Augsburg or Nuremberg are responsible, to the Bavarian State Ministry for Housing, Construction and Transport.

  • The approval office notifies a list of priorities regarding the projects planned in its area of responsibility by 15.03. of the respective funding year at the latest, after consultation with the responsible district and the StMAS.
  • The StMAS decides on the inclusion of a project - within the framework of the available funds - in the annual funding programme (AAP), taking into account the priority lists and the priority of the Land in terms of disability. The decision on the respective JFP depends, among other things, on the preparation of the state budget. Projects that cannot be considered at first due to a lack of funds must be reapplied for in the following year in accordance with No. 9 of these Guidelines and will be available for decision again when the next annual funding programme is drawn up.

  • The approval agencies inform the executing agency about the decision made according to No. 11 and, after submission of the necessary application documents, in particular the concrete design input planning with cost calculation according to DIN 276, as well as after a constructional examination, issue the notice of approval on the granting of the state funds (financing share of the StMAS). The district, which is also involved in the investment promotion, issues a separate notice of approval for its contribution - usually 10% of the eligible expenses.

    As a rule, the funds of the StMAS are approved using commitment appropriations if they are not due for payment until future years. This represents a binding commitment of funds for the executing agency, so that it can start construction and be sure that these funds will actually be paid out in the following budget years. However, these state funds are not only disbursed according to the progress of construction (this is a basic prerequisite), but can only be disbursed successively within the framework of the expenditure funds available in the respective budget year and depending on the other projects also under construction. As a result, the executing agencies have to provide interim financing for some of their projects. This is expressly pointed out to the executing agencies in the notification of approval.

    Insofar as the funding procedure is carried out by the housing promotion approval agencies, the notification of the approved state funds is sent by the Bayerische Landesbodenkreditanstalt, which also handles the real security of the approved funding and disburses the funds.


The projects must be reported to the Bavarian State Ministry for Family Affairs, Labour and Social Affairs by 15 March of each year for inclusion in the annual funding programme for that year by the funding agencies (see above). Thus, the projects should be reported to the governments by the applicants by mid-January of each year at the latest.

Processing time

At least 1 to 2 years should be planned for the above-mentioned procedure for points 1 to 12. If the project has been included in the annual funding (point 11), the processing time from the application to the notification of approval is approx. 3-6 months.
