The amount of the aid is 250 € per month to the beneficiary, with a limit of the monthly amount of the rent. In no case and in no monthly payment may the sum of the aid received by young people up to 35 years of age at the time of applying for the aid who live in the home exceed the amount of the rent stated in the contract.

The amount received by these beneficiaries corresponds to the months of rent due and justified until now before the Directorate General for Housing and Architecture. From now on they can continue to justify new monthly payments up to a maximum of two years and a maximum of €6,000 in aid. To continue paying monthly payments to these 817 beneficiaries, a further €3,521,207 has been committed from the call for applications.

Currently, the processing of all the correct files has been completed and those that needed to be corrected in some aspect are currently being reviewed.

The budget earmarked for the Bono Alquiler Joven is 9.6 million euros, in two annual instalments (2022 and 2023) of 4.8 million euros each, through which direct aid will be given to tenants who hold rental contracts for their habitual and permanent residence.

This aid will be granted for two years to young people who do not exceed three times the IPREM in annual terms (€24,300), for rents of up to €900.

The Bono Alquiler Joven grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to those applications that are complete and correct.

It is expected that at least 1,600 young people between 18 and 35 years of age in the Balearic Islands will be able to benefit from the aid.

Applications for ordinary grants 2022

In parallel to the processing of the Bono Alquiler Joven, the Directorate General for Housing and Architecture is moving forward with the ordinary rental subsidies for 2022. The deadline for applications ended on 15 December and a total of 7,482 applications have been submitted, of which 5,491 are from Mallorca, 1,216 from Menorca, 666 from Ibiza and 109 from Formentera.

During the period open for applications, there have been 1,623 telephone and face-to-face appointments -1,114 face-to-face and 509 by telephone- to offer support to those interested in this call for applications, which has been processed entirely online. There have been more than 34,000 visits to the website and 6,967 reproductions of the tutorial that the Directorate General for Housing and Architecture prepared to resolve doubts throughout the procedure.

The 2022 call for rentals is endowed with €8,734,000, of which €6,534,000 comes from the State Housing Plan 2022-2025 and €2,200,000 from regional funds.

This amount, this year, is in addition to the 4.8 million euros earmarked for the Bono Alquiler Joven. Therefore, between the two calls, this year 2022 the Government has made available rental aid worth a total of 13.5 million euros, 49% more resources than in 2021.
