Two hundred euros will be paid out per household. But the registration deadline has expired.
After the course of inflation, housing costs climbed steadily upward in the past few months. In March, the city of Vienna decided on a 5-point program. This package of measures includes credits for municipal housing residents (“Gemeindebau-Bonus”) as well as the so-called “Wiener Wohnbonus.” Two hundred euros are paid out per household. But anyone who has not yet registered for it should hurry. Because the registration period is entering the home stretch!
According to “Heute,” the measure against housing prices has already been paid out to 623,800 households and thus 124.8 of the promised 140 million euros (as of September 22).
Support for 700,000 Viennese households
Around 700,000 Viennese households are entitled to receive assistance. For a single-person family, the income limit of 40,000 euros gross applies for 2022. The income limit of 100,000 euros gross applies to multi-person households.
Another requirement is that, by the cutoff date of June 28, 2023, one or more individuals must have registered the residential address as their primary residence. The grant will either be paid out via postal check or transferred to the account listed in the online application.
Applications can be made only until next Saturday (September 30), either online or via the service phone at 01 4000 8040. More information and an online income assistant are available at www.wien.gv.at/wohnbonus23.
“Austria still has one of the highest inflation rates in the euro area. That’s why we are continuing to give the Viennese a helping hand. […] Around 700,000 households can be sure that we will again help quickly and without complications with 200 euros each. This is not only a masterstroke of our administration but also a commitment: We are there when things get tight, and we will be there as long as necessary,” says Peter Hacker (SPÖ), City Councillor for Social Affairs.
