Extension of incentive programme to create childcare places

The federal incentive programme to provide more childcare places is to be replaced by a new law that is currently being processed in parliament. Until the law can come into force, the incentive programme will be extended for the fourth time until the end of 2024. The financial aid supports the creation of new childcare places, reduces the costs for parents and promotes projects that better adapt the offer to the needs of parents.
