Labor market fund; application for a grant for qualification and employment promotion measures

The Free State of Bavaria supports you in financing measures for the qualification and employment promotion of unemployed persons and persons threatened by unemployment.

Description

Prerequisites

  • The decisive factor is whether the application is selected for funding (by the Labor Market Fund working group).
  • The measures are intended to promote the transition of participants into the primary labor market (e.g. through qualification measures, internships).
  • Measures are supported in regions in which - in relation to the target groups of the respective funding priority - the unemployment rate in at least one of the annual averages of the last three years is at or above the Bavarian average (so-called priority regions).
  • However, the projects must lie outside the activities of the Federal Employment Agency, the job centers as well as outside the activities of the European Social Fund or other European programs and the measures of the federal government or the state.
  • In principle, no projects that have been subsidized by other funding bodies in the past can be supported by the Labour Market Fund. The measures should be new or innovative.
  • The local employment agency and the local job center must be involved with a request for a technical assessment of the project and appropriate support.
  • Local stakeholders (companies, works councils, local authorities, chambers, etc.) must also be involved.
  • An appropriate own contribution by the project sponsor must be taken into account for the implementation of the project. The project sponsor's own contribution must be at least 10 percent.
  • The overall financing of the project must be secured.
  • With regard to additional funding from third parties, corresponding confirmations from the respective bodies must be submitted (so-called co-financing confirmations).
  • The Labor Market Fund cannot contribute to the financing of transfer companies and projects with work opportunities in accordance with Section 16 d SGB II.

Procedure

For the current 33rd selection round, you will find detailed information on this year's funding priorities, priority regions and the application deadline in the "Supplementary information on the AMF funding guidelines" published on the homepage of the Bavarian State Ministry of Family Affairs, Labor and Social Affairs.(https://www.stmas.bayern.de/arbeit/fonds/index.php). If you have any questions about the individual funding priorities, please do not hesitate to contact the contact persons listed in the supplementary information.

During the application period, the application must be sent exclusively in electronic form as a pdf file by e-mail to arbeitsmarktfonds@stmas.bayern.de (e-mail inbox of the Bavarian State Ministry of Family Affairs, Labor and Social Affairs). The application for funding priority 3) can be sent at any time.

The respective application deadline is a cut-off deadline, i.e. applications that are received late or for which essential documents and information are missing by this time can no longer be considered when the Labor Market Fund Working Group selects the projects.

Projects are selected by the Labour Market Fund Working Group, which is made up of representatives of the Bavarian State Government, business organizations, trade unions and the employment service.

If your application is selected for funding, you may have to further specify the application (concept, cost and financing plan) so that the responsible government can take further steps (such as the approval notice). The governments are responsible for the administrative handling of the projects.

Special notes

  • As a rule, the Labor Market Fund cannot provide funding to finance a project for longer than three years. As long as funding is provided for a shorter period, applications for extensions can be submitted.
  • The aim should be to continue the project on the basis of other funding after the funding has expired.
  • The funded measures are checked for their labor market effectiveness and long-term establishment. By applying for funding, you undertake to assist with the necessary surveys.
  • If the project is selected for funding, a project start is realistic from October of the same year.
