What grants are there for trainees?
In general, trainees are entitled to vocational training allowance (BAB) if their training salary is tight. Since August 2020, the maximum monthly rate has been 723 euros, which does not have to be repaid.
Can trainees receive housing benefit?
In general, anyone who receives BAföG or vocational training allowance (BAB) during their training is not entitled to housing benefit. However, there are a number of exceptions to this. If you have a child, that child could be eligible for housing benefit, even if you are not eligible.
Who pays my rent during training?
Another prerequisite for the vocational training grant is that the trainee is doing in-company or external training. If you are not entitled to vocational training allowance, you can apply for housing benefit from the responsible authority in your city or municipality in order to finance your rent.
