Government announces new emergency measures for youth and the homeless

Jean Castex had, due to the terrorist attack in Conflans-Saint-Honorine (Yvelines) on Friday evening, postpone the presentation of his emergency plan against precariousness, initially scheduled for Saturday, October 17, International Day for the Elimination of poverty. The Prime Minister therefore distils it in the press and, in an interview with Sunday newspaper, this October 18, announces exceptional aid of 150 euros for young people aged 18 to 25 receiving personalized housing assistance (APL).

This puts an end to the concerns of youth organizations who regretted that this age group was excluded from the recovery plan and measures for families already announced, on October 14, by Emmanuel Macron: a one-off aid of 150 euros per household benefiting from the RSA or specific solidarity allowance – paid to the unemployed at the end of their entitlement – plus 100 euros per child for APL beneficiaries.

The government is also considering specific aid for students.

Advanced winter plan

The minister in charge of housing, Emmanuelle Wargon, announces, for her part, an advanced entry into force of the winter plan, on October 18 instead of 1er November.

“The prefects will open additional places to shelter as many people as possible, details the press release. 28,000 Covid spaces, already open, will be maintained ”, bringing the total capacity to 180,000, marauding and day centers being reinforced.

A question remains about the beginning, advanced or not, of the winter break which, for its part, suspends rental evictions. “It would be good news because, in our offices, we are starting to see cases of imminent expulsion”, confides Christophe Robert, general delegate of the Abbé Pierre Foundation.
