Launched in March 2020, the loan value does not exceed 2 million euros and there are only 769 families.
The government supports very few families to help pay rent. Low-income tenant assistance was launched in March 2020 and is scheduled to end this month, serving only 769 families. In addition, there are complaints about the delay in the delivery of such assistance administered by the Institute of Housing and Urban Rehabilitation (IHRU).
Reportedly Listed On Tuesday, the total contract loan amount was approximately 2 million euros. According to the information collected by the newspaper from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Housing, the amount already includes the extension of support received at the same time.
In response to the March covid-19 pandemic, support was launched. The compliance rate for the “exception system for delayed payment of rents in the housing market” has been very low. HRU received 3309 payment support requests from 2,553 families. In other words, only 30% of applicant families approved the process.
Considering the number of households that have signed lease agreements, the reduction in the number of supported households has been criticized by landlords and tenant representatives. As it is difficult to prove the existence of the contract or loss of revenue, the government justified the weak adhesion.
