Second heating cost subsidy (Heizkostenzuschuss) for students with BAföG or housing allowance (Wohngeld) (€345 or €415) in spring 2023

Just like the first heating cost subsidy (Heizkostenzuschuss) in fall 2022, a second subsidy for BAföG and housing allowance (Wohngeld) recipients is also planned to be paid out this spring 2023.

For Berlin, the payment is expected to start in April. The amount is €345 for BAföG recipients and €415 for housing allowance (Wohngeld) recipients (if living alone).

An application is not necessary again, and the requirement is that you were in receipt of BAföG or housing allowance (Wohngeld) for at least one month between September 1st, 2022 and December 31st, 2022, and did not live with your parents.
