Housing promotion

Building and living are topics that are associated with high costs. The step towards home ownership, whether in the form of a condominium or a home, is therefore very carefully considered and weighed up by those interested in building or buying. Incentives to become a homeowner are created by the federal and state governments by providing financial support through subsidy programs.

Wolfsburg is a child and family-oriented city and is characterized by an excellent municipal family policy. In addition to a diverse range of services for families, the city has a special support program for building and housing. This improves the starting conditions for home ownership for young people and families.

Overview of the various funding opportunities:

  • Building loan from the state of Lower Saxony

    The state of Lower Saxony grants subsidies for new construction, the purchase of a newly built property for first-time occupancy or the purchase of an existing property. The amount depends on the number of people in the household:

    For natural persons (single or married) 50,000.00 euros
    for each child 5,000.00 euros
    for each person with a disability living in the household 5,000.00 euros

    In addition, a subsidy of 2,000.00 euros is granted for each child and/or person with disabilities living in the household.

    In addition, loans of up to 85% of the total costs, but not more than EUR 50,000.00, can be granted for modernization or energy-related modernization.

    The funding is granted depending on income.

    The state funds are approved by the state's funding agency at the NBank. The housing subsidy office of the city of Wolfsburg is responsible for the application.
    Please note that the state's funding programs are revised from time to time and the criteria may change as a result.
