Apply for grants for the training and employment of people with disabilities


Subsidies for training allowances for disabled and severely disabled persons or persons treated as such

As a rule, they receive the training subsidy continuously for the entire duration of the training or further education.

The amount of the subsidy is determined individually and depends on the nature and severity of the disabilities as well as the impact of the disabilities on education or training.

The subsidy is paid monthly and amounts to up to 60 percent, in the case of severely disabled or equivalent people up to 80 percent of the monthly training allowance, each including the flat-rate employer's share of the total social security contribution. In justified exceptional cases, subsidies may be provided up to the amount of the training allowance for the last year of training.

All company measures that have a vocational training or qualification of the disabled or severely disabled person as their content and also focus, can be funded. This includes, for example, dual courses of study if they include a vocational qualification in accordance with the Vocational Training Act.

Whether you can receive the subsidy for the training allowance is decided by your employment agency or your job centre. There is no legal entitlement to a subsidy.

Integration grant following training or further education

If you hire a severely disabled person after training or further education supported and completed with a training grant, the Employment Agency or the Job Centre can pay you an integration grant.

The integration grant amounts to up to 70 percent of the salary and can be paid out for 1 year.

However, the specific amount is at the discretion of the Employment Agency or the Job Center.

You can apply for both the training allowance subsidy and the integration allowance afterwards in writing, in person or by telephone:

  • Get in touch with your personal contact person for the Employer Service of your employment agency or your contact persons in the job centre. There you will find the forms to fill out and information on the application procedure.
  • Complete the application in full and submit it to the Employment Agency or the Job Centre.
  • Submit all required documents by post.
  • The Employment Agency or the Job Centre will examine your application.
  • You will then receive a notification by post as to whether your application has been approved or rejected.

The prerequisite for the subsidy for the training allowance is:

  • that training or further education cannot be achieved without this support,
  • that there is a suitability for the desired training or further education occupation,
  • that there is a signed training or further education contract with the company,
  • that training allowance, wage or salary is paid,
  • in the case of disabled people, the Federal Employment Agency is the responsible rehabilitation provider

The prerequisite for the integration grant is:

  • that an employment contract exists following a successfully completed in-company training or further education and
  • that this training or further education has been supported with a training grant.
  • Signed training or further education contract (in the case of training allowance)
  • Signed employment contract (in the case of integration grant)
  • Entry in the list of training relationships (in the case of training)
  • if applicable, severely disabled person's card
  • where applicable, decision on the degree of disability and/or equality notice
  • Proof of completed training or further education (in the case of integration grant)

You must apply for the training grant before you have concluded the training or further education contract.

You must apply for the integration grant before the person you will be employing starts working.
