Exchange for accommodation package

Housing package amounts are changing slightly compared to 2021. These amounts will be deducted from the RSA if you receive housing assistance or have no housing expenses to pay..

What is the “housing package”?

The housing package is a lump sum withheld to assess housing-related benefits enjoyed by a beneficiary. It is taken into account by social organizations to assess the applicant’s resources when he also benefits from housing aid (APL for example).

Instead of taking into account the amount paid for housing assistance, the organization retains a fixed amount that is revalued each year and that varies according to the number of people residing in the beneficiary’s household. It is this amount that is used to later deduct the resources already received for housing assistance. The housing package also applies when the applicant is considered to be receiving a benefit in kind for his accommodation, ie when he stays for free or owns his accommodation.

In 2022, the activity bonus will see its amount increased by 1.8% from April 2022, in line with the rise in prices observed for several months in France. As a reminder, the revaluation had only been 0.1% in the spring of 2021, details family folder.
