Service Description

The aim of the education package is to ensure that children from financially disadvantaged families are not deprived of the necessary education and participation opportunities. As an eligible person or parent, you have the opportunity to apply for financial support from the state. The funding covers the following areas:

Up to a maximum of 18 years of age:

  • Participation in social and cultural life, e.g. in a sports club or music school, is subsidized with up to EUR 15.00 per month.

Up to the age of 25:

  • The provision of personal school supplies is subsidized with EUR 174.00 per year (EUR 116.00 for the first half of the school year, EUR 58.00 for the second half).
  • The costs of additional appropriate learning support are covered insofar as they are necessary to achieve the learning objectives set out in school regulations.
  • The actual costs of one-day excursions by schools, day-care centers and day-care centers are reimbursed.
  • The actual costs of excursions lasting several days organized by day-care centers and day-care centers for children as well as school trips within the framework of school regulations are covered.
  • Allowances are paid for communal lunches for pupils (if the school is responsible) and for children in day care centers and child day care.
  • The necessary actual expenses for transportation to the nearest school of the chosen course of education (monthly student tickets) will be covered (own contribution if the ticket can also be used outside of school transportation).
