Apply for grants for the training and employment of people with disabilities at the Employment Agency


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

As a rule, you will receive the training grant continuously for the entire duration of the training or further education.

The amount of the subsidy is determined individually and depends on the type and severity of the disabilities and 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 for the last year of training or further education, in each case including the employer's lump-sum share of the total social security contribution. In justified exceptional cases, grants can be provided up to the amount of the training allowance for the last year of training or further education.

All company measures that have as their content and focus on vocational training or qualification of people with disabilities or severely disabled people 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. There is no legal entitlement to a subsidy.

Integration allowance following training or further education

If you hire a severely disabled person after training or further education has been funded and completed with a training grant, the Employment Agency can pay you an integration subsidy.

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

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

The competent authority is the employment agency in whose district the employee resides at the beginning of the training or further education relationship or the employment relationship.

The prerequisite for the subsidy for the training allowance is:

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

The prerequisite for the integration grant is:

  • that an employment contract is in place following successfully completed in-company training or further education, and
  • that this training or further education was supported with a training grant for severely disabled people.
  • Signed training or further education contract (in the case of subsidy for training allowance)
  • Signed employment contract (in case of integration grant)
  • Entry in the list of apprenticeships (in the case of apprenticeships)
  • If applicable, severely disabled person's pass
  • if applicable, notification of 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 allowance before the person you will employ starts working.
