The federal government stops state subsidies for house builders and causes protests

Bad news for house builders: The new federal government has stopped state subsidies for new buildings in view of a flood of applications and the threat of additional costs running into billions. It is about programs for more energy efficiency. This was also justified with a “mismanagement” in climate protection.

The Ministry of Economic Affairs spoke internally of an “emergency brake”. The move sparked protests from the housing industry. The federal government is now planning new subsidy programs and statutory new building standards.
