San Miguel go-ahead for its housing grants 

PEOPLE living in San Miguel de Abona resident can now apply for a series of grants to renovate their properties, or help with rent payments.

The Town Hall has given the official go-ahead, having publishing the deadline dates for their State Housing Plan 2018-2021 in the Official Bulletin of the Canary Islands.

There are five main areas for grants:

*Rental assistance

*Renovation for the improvement of energy efficiency

*An assistance programme for young people under 35 *Renovation for conservation

*Renovation for increased accessibility and more facilities

To access the rent subsidies, applicants must be of legal age and have a rental contract, which shows their habitual residence, but whose income is equal to, or less than, 500 euros per month, or, in the case of a large family, 600 euros monthly.

The beneficiaries will be granted a 40% subsidy of their monthly rent, and, in addition, beneficiaries who are aged 65 or over this year, may be granted up to 50% of their monthly rent.

This grant will be for two consecutive years, 2018 and 2019, so that the beneficiaries will have assistance for the two annuities. The deadline for this is on Tuesday 28th August, 2018.

Likewise, application for grants in all other areas, such as home improvements, etc, closes on Tuesday, 4th September.

Arturo Gonzalez Hernandez, Mayor of San Miguel de Abona, is delighted to see additional support for the venture from the Canarian Government.

“It is a very good opportunity for our neighbours, who want to improve their home, or who need access to rental assistance,” he said
