Pursuant to Articles 23 and 44 of the Bavarian Budget Code (BayHO), the Free State of Bavaria grants subsidies in accordance with this guideline and the administrative regulations on Articles 23 and 44 of the Bavarian Budget Code (BayHO) to support certain investment costs for the room and office equipment of private vocational schools for nursing.
Since April 1, 2020, generalist training as a nursing specialist has been taking place at newly established vocational schools for nursing. The introduction of the new type of school in place of the previous vocational schools for nursing, pediatric nursing and geriatric nursing and the associated changeover to a financing system essentially defined in federal law (Nursing Professions Act - PflBG; Nursing Professions Training Financing Ordinance - PflAFinV) should not put the school operators in a worse position than would have been the case if the previous financing system under state law had continued to apply.
The refinancing of investment costs for room and office equipment is intended to cover financial gaps in the training allowance for nursing schools under federal law. Voluntary financial support is granted for this purpose within the framework of available budget funds.
The object of the funding is the operation of a vocational nursing school.
Recipient of funding
Eligible to apply for and receive funding are sponsors of state-approved or state-recognized vocational nursing schools in Bavaria if these sponsors are legal entities under public or private law and operate on a non-profit basis (Art. 29 Par. 2 BaySchFG by analogy).
Eligible costs are expenses for items of room and office equipment, insofar as these exceed the limit of Section 6 (2) EStG per item. In the case of consumer goods and consumables, it must be demonstrated in each individual case that they are items of office and business equipment and are not refinanced via the flat-rate training allowance pursuant to Section 30, Paragraph 1, Sentence 2 PflBG.
Type and amount
The subsidy for office equipment is provided as a non-repayable grant (project funding) as part of partial financing.
The maximum funding rate is 90 percent of the eligible expenses. A contribution of at least 800 euros per item purchased, but at least 10 percent of the total eligible expenditure, remains with the sponsor.
