Quack on the APL: “Effective support” for young people in precarious situations will be announced on Saturday

The Prime Minister will specify the measure in a series of announcements on the occasion of the international day against poverty, Franceinfo learned from a source within the executive.

After the rally around the youth on the exceptional aid paid to the beneficiaries of the RSA, the ASS and the APL to deal with the Covid-19 crisis, the executive is preparing to rectify the shooting. The Elysée assured franceinfo that the goal set by the President of the Republic to help the precarious and modest 18-25 year olds will be met.

Emmanuel Macron announced on Wednesday during his television interview, exceptional aid of 150 euros, plus 100 euros per child, for beneficiaries of the Active Solidarity Income (RSA) and personalized housing assistance (APL). But ultimately this aid will not actually benefit 18-25 year olds. Beneficiaries of APL (personalized housing assistance) will receive 100 euros per child but not the basic 150 euros, unlike recipients of RSA (active solidarity income)and of the ASS (specific solidarity allowance). Beneficiaries of the flat-rate premium for resumption of activity, of the equivalent retirement allowance (AER) or of the solidarity income (RSO) will also receive 150 euros..

A source within the executive told franceinfo that“Effective support” will be brought to precarious young people. The Prime Minister Jean Castex will specify the measure in a series of announcements Saturday, October 17 on the occasion of the international day against poverty.
