Apply for funding for land revitalization and/or remediation of contaminated sites

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If you are planning a land revitalization project in an urban area within Schleswig-Holstein, you can receive funding under certain conditions. Area revitalization means the preparation for the conversion of an underused or sealed area into an ecologically valuable area (e.g. green/park area, urban green, flowering/wild meadow, green infrastructure). The preparation for the conversion of an area for ecological reuse can also include the remediation of contaminated sites or the removal of soil contamination.


Process flow

You submit a funding application to Investitionsbank Schleswig-Holstein. It is recommended that you seek advice from Investitionsbank Schleswig-Holstein beforehand.

Investitionsbank Schleswig-Holstein will check the application and request any missing documents or information. Once a complete application has been submitted, Investitionsbank Schleswig-Holstein will decide whether to approve the funding. There is no legal entitlement to funding.

A project can only be started before the funding is approved if you apply for an early start of the measure and this is approved by Investitionsbank Schleswig-Holstein.
