Wohnbaugenossenschaft GGH Heidelberg (Housing Construction Cooperative Heidelberg)

To be able to rent a flat from the GGH Heidelberg, you need to have a certificate of eligibility for public accommodation (Wohnberechtigungsschein), which you can apply for at the city's administrative offices or at the Wohngeldstelle (housing benefit office: see below).

Housing benefit 

The State provides housing benefits if certain requirements are met:

  • Applicants do not receive BAföG (e.g. during leave of absence for reason of pregnancy or childcare). Student couples (married) are eligible for housing benefit if one of the parents does not receive BAföG. Parent students normally receive housing benefits unless the child is a BAföG recipient himself/herself.
  • Independent housekeeping: You have your own household.
  • Income: The amount of housing benefits further depends on the number of family members in the household, the total income of the family (including salary, orphans’ pension and alimony payments) and the rent to be subsidised. The family income may be reduced by certain exemptions and tax allowable expenses.

Further information and model calculations can be found on the website of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community..
