People on low incomes can apply for Wohngeld (housing benefit). This a payment that subsidises your rent.
You receive housing benefit if you do not have sufficient income to pay for your housing. The housing benefit for tenants is called a rent subsidy, the housing benefit for owners of owner-occupied housing is called an encumbrance subsidy.
Depends on the individual case.
It is based on the size of the household, income and rent or charges.
Generally for 12 months.
In individual cases, this period may be longer or shorter.
If you want to continue receiving housing benefit after this period, you must apply for it again.
