Frankfurt Program Promoting Social Rented Residential Properties

Low-income households can often not sufficiently find dwellings in Frankfurt where the rent is affordable. Given a tight market for apartments and high rental levels, as well as the expiry of the existing cap on rents and restrictions on re-occupancies, there is an ongoing urgent need for the construction of new rental apartments that will be let at reduced rent.
Municipal support for apartments built under capped rents agreements and under specific occupancy provisions provides cheap residences for those households who are the target group of the Act Promoting Residential Properties. This group includes, in particular, households with children, single parents with children, older or physically challenged persons, the homeless and other persons in need of assistance.
The City of Frankfurt’s promotion of social rented residential properties takes the form of building loans and subsidies at preferential interest rates; these can be granted to developers who own or will own suitable real estate inside the city limits. The scheme is combined with the State of Hessen’s program to promote social residential properties through the construction of rental properties and rental properties for middle-income occupants.
The range of support the City of Frankfurt offers was updated in July 2016 as regards the following important Points:


There is no specific city form to be completed for the “Frankfurt Program Promoting Social Rented Residential Properties”. The municipal loan supplements the state loan for social rental property construction. Both loans must therefore always be applied for together using the WI-Bank application form. You will find the requisite application forms under the heading “Construction of new social apartments”.

The municipal residential construction support agency provides advice and can take receipt of applications for municipal and state loans.
