How to live in subsidized housing and the rules

In Emsdetten, a town with about 36.ooo inhabitants, people have the opportunity to apply for living in subsidized housing. But how does it work, how do people apply for it and under which conditions do people have to live to make use of it? To make use of subsidized housing people need a certificate of eligibility for a council flat (in German: Wohnberechtigungsschein). To get this certificate, people have to meet several conditions. In a single household the net income must not exceed 1.800€. When two people live together their net income combined has to be under 2.700€.

That means that not only people that do not earn enough money can apply …

As the city hall of Emsdetten says, more than half of the inhabitants have applied for subsidized housing and do need it. Why do people apply for subsidized housing?

Therefore towns provide social housings that are either built for low-income people or that have a low rent so people …
