Frontier workers not eligible for Baukindergeld

In March the German coalition agreed to a subsidy aimed at stimulating young families' own home ownership financially. Only  people living in Germany are eligible.

The Baukindergeld was examined in the framework of ITEM’s annual Cross-border Impact Assessment.
