“The youth voucher will come into effect with the approval of the budgets, that is, in January 2022”. These are the words of Raquel Sánchez, Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda. A voucher, of 250 euros, intended for young people can be emancipated so that their destination is the rental of a home and of which around 70,000 people will benefit. This aid will be received for a period of two years.
The bonus will not be available only to those who, as of 2022, want to become emancipated. Those young people who are already rented will also be able to access it “If they meet the requirements,” Minister Raquel Sánchez clarified.
There are three requirements that will be taken into account to access this bonus. On the one hand, the applicant must be between 18 and 35 years old. Both age ranges are included. On the other, it must be working. And, finally, you must not have an income of more than 23,752 euros per year.
Regarding this last point, two considerations must be taken into account: if the salary is charged in 12 annual payments, we are talking about 1,979 euros per month; if, on the contrary, there are 14 payments per year, that amount would be 1,696 euros per month.
Another qualification is that, in the case of family units in a situation of greater vulnerability, the voucher could be supplemented. The aid could be up to 40% of its value.
In the specific case of the budgets, Minister Raquel Sánchez said that they are “designed for a fair recovery, to make Spain a more productive, more competitive and more sustainable country.” And he stressed that they are made “to guarantee that economic improvement reaches all families.”
The minister framed these budgets in a stage “of strong growth of our economy.” So what, together with the injection of European funds “They give us the opportunity of resources for social investment and also for productive investment.”
Some budgets for “impulse and modernization” that will allow “to accelerate the reforms that allow us to be more resilient in the social, economic and environmental aspects in the future.” Because, we are looking at the “most ambitious budgets of the last 12 years”.
A budget of more than 19,000 million, and whose investment amounts to 16,286 million. Therefore, it is an increase of 17% compared to the current ones. “We are practically doubling the budgets inherited from the previous Government,” said Raquel Sánchez. The ministry has already activated more than 8,000 million.
An investment that represents around 40% of all public investment of the PGE where toIn addition to the Ministry’s own investments, “we contemplate more than 3,600 million euros of transfers to autonomous communities and local entities.”
The Budgets of the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda for 2022 collect 6,500 million euros in investments financed by the European Plan. “Thanks to this plan, we continue to accelerate and implement the policies for which we are committed to mobility and housing,” said Raquel Sánchez.
Thus, 1,740 million will be invested to decarbonize cities; 2,273 million to unite, connect and modernize mobility; and about 2,500 million euros for housing “for the creation of a real social rental housing stock and for the rehabilitation of our stock.” The housing budget increases by almost 50%.
