With a municipal council resolution dated December 19, 2019, the City of Vienna awards grants for the installation of sun protection devices in multi-storey residential buildings (municipal housing, subsidized or privately financed housing).
The building permit must have been issued at least 20 years ago. In the case of attic apartments that are expanded at a later date, the time of the building permit applies.
Who can submit the application?
- Tenants, beneficiaries, owners of an apartment in a multi-storey residential building (collective application by homeowners is possible)
- Wiener Wohnen or building associations, which were recognized as non-profit in the sense of the Non-Profit Housing Act, in the course of residential building renovations according to Section II of the WWFSG 1989
Tenants of community flats must apply to Wiener Wohnen for a permit. The approval depends on the circumstances in each individual case.

You can apply for funding online. Please note the documents required for this.

After the test and if the test result is positive, you will receive a letter of completion. The accounting and tax department transfers the funding in the form of a one-off grant.
