The Free State of Bavaria grants subsidies to local authorities to strengthen needs-based and needs-oriented care in the local social environment and for the creation, expansion and operation of coordination centers.



Funding requirements

  • a detailed cost and financing plan
  • a project description with a technical concept that shows
    • the geographical area covered by the project and how many people are involved
    • what the needs situation is like,
    • how an exchange will take place at (supra-)regional level,
    • how the active participation of people in need of care and people at risk of needing care in the local area is achieved in the design and planning of the services,
    • how coordination with other stakeholders in the local community and the sustainability of the planned services are ensured,
    • how networking with the local community is established with the aim of bringing about any necessary structural changes,
    • how existing care structures, where necessary, are flanked in such a way that a focus on care activities is possible,

    • how the success of the measures implemented can be evaluated and their sustainability ensured.
  • the eligible expenditure for the measures must amount to at least EUR 5,000 (de minimis limit).

  • Coherence of the overall concept and its implementation,
  • the proportion of people in need of care in relation to the population of the municipality submitting the application
  • and only then the urgency of the project.

For follow-up applications, it is sufficient to state the changes compared to the previous application when submitting the application.
