The subsidy supplement for architect or consulting engineer fees is a subsidy granted by the State as a supplement to the construction subsidy or the subsidy for the improvement of old housing, to partially cover architect and consulting engineer fees and expenses.
The maximum amount of the subsidy supplement is half of the cost of the architect or consulting engineer fees, and is capped at EUR 1,250.
This aid can only be granted once to the beneficiary.
