The 2022-2025 Housing Plan improves rental assistance for vulnerable groups

The new Housing Plan, which the Government plans to approve next Tuesday in the Council of Ministers, emphasizes improving rental assistance and housing solutions for vulnerable groups. It covers the period 2022-2025, with an economic endowment this year of 345 million euros, and news such as the promotion of the cohousing, the financing of shared houses.

This will be the youth rental voucher

How much money will the beneficiaries receive per month? Who can qualify for the bonus? What income should the beneficiaries have? How are the grants managed?

Beyond the youth rental voucher, which is included in the same decree, the Housing Plan contemplates rental aid for households with incomes of up to 24,300 euros per year -three times the IPREM- or up to 40,500 euros -five times- if they are Large families, with members with disabilities or victims of terrorism: they may receive, for five years, up to half the cost of the rent, if it does not exceed 600 or 900 euros, as decided by the autonomous community in question.

Rental prices that are also the reference in other programs: in cases of gender violence, eviction, homeless people, or due to sudden vulnerability -being unemployed, for example- the aid can cover the entire amount of the rent.

And up to 35 years of age, in addition to the youth voucher, you can access other aids, both for rent and purchase, and rent payment insurance, for years, at a very low cost.

Shared houses

One of the novelties of the plan is the promotion of shared houses: the cohousing, for intergenerational coexistence, or of groups such as seasonal workers in agricultural campaigns.

Sources from the Ministry of Transport -responsible for Housing policies- point out that there is a growing demand, from the cooperative movement and the third sector, to offer buildings in which individual space is reduced, but that of common services is expanded, to groups like the elderly who prefer this formula to traditional nursing homes.

The starting idea is not to create exclusive ghettos for that age group – these sources explain – but rather open alternatives for intergenerational coexistence.

It is also thought of offering a decent accommodation to workers who come temporarily to cover agricultural campaigns, and who do not always have adequate resources.

The plan is completed with other programs such as the use of Sareb housing to offer “housing solutions” in case of need, aid for the construction of housing for affordable social rent, or subsidies for housing accessibility: because rehabilitation European funds do not cover this possibility.
