Private elementary and secondary schools; application for a grant for construction measures

School board approved private elementary and middle schools may receive grants for construction.



The purpose of the state construction grants is to support private sponsors.


Private elementary and secondary schools operated by a legal entity under public or private law and operating on a non-profit basis are granted subsidies for necessary construction measures that have been approved by the school authorities.

A two-year waiting period applies (exception: church denominational schools).

Recipients of funding

School boards of private alternative schools are eligible to apply.

Type and amount

School authorities receive a grant of 60% (70% for state-recognised primary and secondary schools and 100% for church denominational schools) of the eligible costs for necessary construction measures approved by the school authorities, provided that these costs exceed 25,000 euros. In this context, costs may be recognised as eligible for funding if they are considered eligible expenses for municipal school construction measures in the municipal financial equalisation scheme. The timing of compensation for building costs is determined by the funds allocated in the state budget. Grant rates of 70% and 80% are provided for private primary schools and secondary modern/middle schools that were established or recognised as state substitute schools on 7 October 2014.
