What you can prepare – and how to apply

  1. Check whether the enterprise is eligible to apply for grants
    We can help you to determine whether the enterprise is eligible to apply for grants by asking you a few questions.
  2. Contact an authorised public accountant or auditor if you do not already have one.
    An authorised public accountant or auditor must check and verify the application before it is submitted. You will find an overview of authorised public accountants and auditors here:

    In the case of sole proprietorships, the following may submit an application on behalf of the enterprise:

    In the case of other organisational forms, one of the following may submit an application on behalf of the enterprise:
