COVID-19 impact on Berlin: IBB made a big difference for hundreds of thousands of people. This video explains the reasons.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown decided by the German government, hundreds of thousands of Berliners' livelihoods were suddenly threatened in March 2020. At the end of March 2020, many of those affected did not know how to pay their rents in the coming months.
The federal government set up a Corona emergency aid program. For the state of Berlin, IBB was commissioned to take over the application process and pay out the aid money to hundreds and thousands of eligible people. Many of the people directly affected were saved from private insolvency by the Corona emergency aid.
