Rental apartments and care places in inpatient care facilities; application for funding for modernization measures.

The Free State of Bavaria promotes the modernization of rented housing in multi-family houses as well as of care places in inpatient care facilities in accordance with the SGB XI (German Social Code) in accordance with the guidelines for the Bavarian Modernization Program.



The objectives of the subsidy are:

  • Increase the utility value of housing,
  • Improvement of general housing conditions,
  • Adaptation of housing to the needs of older people,
  • Energy and water saving,
  • CO2 reduction as a result of modernization,
  • Maintaining and restoring the urban function of older residential areas,
  • Ensuring socially acceptable rent after modernization,
  • Determination of the eligible group of persons by means of a general occupancy right.


On behalf of the Free State of Bavaria, the Bayerische Landesbodenkreditanstalt (BayernLabo) promotes the modernization and renewal (repair) of rental apartments in multi-family dwellings as well as of care places in inpatient care facilities.


Owners, leaseholders and usufructuaries of rented residential buildings and inpatient care facilities are eligible to apply.

Funding is provided without legal entitlement in the form of low-interest loans and supplementary grants within the limits of available funds up to 100 percent of the eligible costs.
