The highest level of GRW funding varies within Germany. It essentially depends on the economic development of the particular region. In this manner, Berlin was split into two funding areas (C and D funding areas).

In both Berlin funding areas, investment assistance from the Joint Task for the Improvement of Regional Economic Structures and other public funding sources is possible at a maximum of the gross funding rates listed below:
