Vienna Housing Subsidies Department

Community-owned apartmentsHousing has been seen in Vienna as a public task for more than eight decades. Today, the City Department for Housing and Urban Renewal, headed by Councillor Michael Ludwig, is responsible for the subsidisation of several thousand new apartments each year by the Municipal Department 50 - Housing Promotion and Arbitration Board for Legal Housing Matters. The department is also responsible for Europe's largest housing renewal program (wohnfonds_wien - Fund for Housing Construction and Urban Renewal), and for the administration of more than 220,000 city-owned flats (Wiener Wohnen). The City of Vienna organizes special "developers' contests" to improve planning and ecological qualities, and provides individual allowances to low-income households.
