Start-up cash Plus

The Federation’s Start-up cash Plus programme complements the REAG/GARP Federation-Länder programme by providing additional financial support for asylum-seekers, for persons whose removal has been suspended (Geduldete), for persons who are enforceably required to leave the federal territory and for those who have filed subsequent and second applications, if they bindingly opt to return to their home countries voluntarily.
