This Tuesday the 18th, the Council of Ministers will approve the young rent aid bonus that the Government has been announcing over the last few months, which in principle will be applied on a retroactive from January 1, 2022.

This subsidy, which seeks to help young people who have difficulties to face the price of their homes , will be a maximum of 250 euros per person, and may be requested by several tenants on the same floor if they meet the requirements and if the sum of the amounts received is not higher than the rent they pay. Likewise, it will have an influence if the house is in an area classified as “stressed” by rental prices.

To request this aid you must have between 18 and 35 years old and the income must be less than three times the Public Indicator of Income for Multiple Effects (IPREM).

In 2022 this indicator is 8,106 euros, although it changes annually; this implies that right now the income of the beneficiaries must not exceed 24,318 euros per year.

However, it cannot be received for more than two years, and in principle -waiting for the definitive text- it will not be compatible with other aid from the autonomous communities, local organizations or other administrations or public entities. Even so, those who are also benefiting from the Minimum Vital Income will be able to receive it.

Another filter will be the price of the house. The Government will exclude those who pay an excessively high rent, understanding that they do not need subsidies to face it.

What happens if I share a flat?

A complex issue to understand who can ask for the youth voucher is the amount of the rent. In principle, the cap will be 600 euros, but the communities that want to (because the autonomies will manage it) can increase it to 900.

In addition, the Government, aware that many young people share a flat to divide expenses, will relax the limits for tenants who are co-owners. The small print of the bonus will be known after passing through the Council of Ministers.
