Jean Castex rectified the situation: he finally announced that the aid of 150 euros for the most precarious people will be extended to young people benefiting from housing assistance and to scholarship students.
During his televised interview last Wednesday, President Emmanuel Macron announced “exceptional aid of 150 euros plus 100 euros per child” for “beneficiaries of the RSA (active solidarity income) and APL (personalized housing aid) which suddenly affects all young people very widely, 18/25 years ”.
Except that the next day, the thousands of households receiving Personalized Housing Assistance (APL) had taken a cold shower when the Matignon services had specified that this bonus would only be paid to beneficiaries of the RSA and the Specific Solidarity Allowance. (ASS, for the unemployed at the end of their rights). The beneficiaries of the APL should only receive 100 euros per child …
Immediately, associations fighting against insecurity had deplored that young people under 25, if they have no children, be excluded from the new system. “The government must reframe the shooting”, had demanded on France Info, Christophe Robert, the general delegate of the Abbé Pierre Foundation.
The message has therefore been heard. “Regarding young people, I am announcing today that we are extending this aid to them: 150 euros will also be paid to the 400,000 young people who receive APL and to scholarship students”, assures Jean Castex in the JDD.
And to add: if “the choice of the President of the Republic” was to “promote integration through work”, “we are also fully aware of the fact that when an economic crisis occurs, it affects first and foremost. full force on precarious people and young people. “
