Rental housing for people with disabilities; application for a grant for the adaptation

The adaptation of rented housing to the needs of people with disabilities (Section 2 (1) of the Ninth Book of the Social Code) can be funded.


For structural measures in existing buildings to adapt rented housing to the needs of people with disabilities (e.g. installation of a handicapped-accessible bathroom or stair lift, construction of a ramp for wheelchair users), owners of rented housing can receive a performance-free construction loan of up to 10,000 euros.


  • Only households whose income does not exceed the income limits specified in Art. 11 BayWoFG can benefit from the subsidy.
  • Proof of a disability in accordance with Section 2 (1) SGB IX must be provided.
  • The construction project may not be started before the subsidies have been approved.

There is no legal entitlement to a subsidy.


The procedure is two-stage:

  1. The application must be submitted to the granting agency using the forms and documents provided. In the case of a two-family house, the application must be submitted to your district office or city, and in the case of a multi-family house, the application must be submitted to the responsible government (exception: if the rental apartment is located in Augsburg, Munich or Nuremberg, the city is the approval office). The approval is made by the approval office.
  2. The Bayerische Landesbodenkreditanstalt is responsible for loan approval and delivery of the notice of approval.

The disbursement is to be applied for at the approval office.


Occupancy commitment 5 years

After completion of the measure, the supporting documents must be submitted after 6 months at the latest.

  • Proof of financing - Sketch plan (in the event of a change in the layout of the apartment)

  • Proof of disability (e.g. severely disabled pass, specialist medical certificate)
