climate government: aid for private house builders after kfw funding freeze
Berlin – private house builders can hope for support after the controversial kfw funding freeze. There are to be hardship provisions for families in particular.
This was signaled by both finance minister christian lindner (FDP) and economics and climate protection minister robert habeck (greens) on sunday. An agreement within the federal government did not give it however yet.
On Monday, a surprise announcement was made that, with immediate effect, no new applications for subsidies for efficient buildings could be submitted to the state development bank kfw. The move had triggered large protests. 24.000 applications still open, 4,000 of them from private builders.
