The Vienna Housing Bonus ’23 is a subsidy the State of Vienna provides. There is no legal entitlement to the Vienna Housing Bonus ’23.

The City of Vienna sends an information letter to every address in Vienna where one or more persons have registered their primary residence as of the cut-off date of June 28, 2023. The letter contains the password you need to apply online.

Two hundred euros can be paid out per Viennese address. You will receive the grant on the account you indicated in the application. If you have not stated an account, the instruction will be mailed. The payment is usually made a few working days after you have submitted your application.

Only one request can be made per address. If you have your primary residence in an assisted living facility in Vienna, you can submit a separate application for yourself.

Data protection
Information on data protection and your rights as a data subject can be found in Information on data protection law.

An application for the housing bonus can be submitted by persons over 18 who have registered their primary residence at a Viennese address by the cut-off date of June 28, 2023.

Your application will be automatically rejected if you are registered at your address after the cut-off date.

You can apply if registered at a Viennese address with primary residence on the cut-off date and moved afterwards. You will have to indicate your new address in a postal order.

The following annual income limits apply:

Forty thousand euros gross if one person has their primary residence at one address (under § 1 (7) MeldeG).
One hundred thousand euros gross if more than one person has their primary residence at an address (according to § 1 para. 7 MeldeG).
Only the income of persons over the age of 18 is taken into account.

The income limit of 40,000 euros gross also applies if you have your primary residence in an assisted living facility in Vienna.

The income limit of 100,000 euros gross applies, for example:

If you are a single parent, your minor child has their primary residence with you.
If you live with your parents in a single-family home.
If you live in a shared apartment with other persons aged 18 or over who also have their primary residence there.
To apply, your income must be below the income limits.

You can find your gross annual income on your 2022 income tax notice. If you do not have an income tax assessment for 2022, the income tax assessment 2021 is decisive. If you do not have an income tax assessment for 2021 and 2022, you can refer to the 2022 annual wage slip. The 2023 income is not relevant for eligibility.

If you did not receive taxable income from the seven types of payment under the Income Tax Act and received only one of the benefits below in 2022, then you meet the requirements regarding the income limits. The following benefits do not count toward gross annual income.

Viennese minimum benefit
Viennese basic income support
Housing allowance
AlVG and AMSG benefits such as unemployment benefits, emergency assistance, retraining allowances, allowance to cover subsistence or allowances for course costs and ancillary course costs
AMFG benefits
