Families with average income to be eligible for subsidies if rent is more than 25% of their gross income
The Government will continue extending the subsidy measures to ensure social and affordable accommodation.
As from next year, the annual income bracket of the individual will go up, but he will still be eligible to benefit from this scheme.
The annual income of a single person to be eligible for this benefit will go up from €14,500 to €19,000. For a couple with two children, this will. go up from €28,600 to €32,000.
More families on an average income will therefore be eligible for a subsidy if their rent is more than 25% of their gross income.
