Maximum amount

To obtain a dwelling, the total annual income of persons to be housed may not exceed a maximum amount.

The annual income is the reference tax income of year n-2, which is recorded on the tax notice for year n-1. For a housing application made in 2024, these are reference tax revenue for 2022, listed on the 2023 tax assessment.

  • Your co-applicant: Civil partnerships' or cohabiting spouse or partner, or a member of your family who is not dependent on you (only among these: grandfather, grandmother, mother, father, son, daughter, granddaughter, grandson, brother, sister)
  • People and children figurative on your tax notice or that of your co-applicant. These include children with disabilities of all ages, children under the age of 21 (including alternating care if declared at the home of each parent), students under the age of 25, and persons with a disability-inclusive mobility card (or disability card).
  • Children rights of access and accommodation

Your revenues have gone down

If your current revenues have decreased by at least 10% compared to those in year n-2, it is possible that your revenues in year n-1 or those of the last 12 months are taken into account. To do this, you need to provide documents proving your revenue decline. An attestation on honor drawn up by yourself is not allowed.

Example:

You apply in 2024 and your current revenues are lower than those of 2022. If the drop is at least 10%, then it is possible that your 2023 income or that of the 12 months preceding your social housing application will be taken into account.

You no longer live with the person you filed your taxes with

If you apply in 2024 and your 2023 tax notice includes your income and that of the person you lived with in pairs in 2022, it is possible that only your income will be taken into account. To do this, you need to be in one of the following situations:

  • You're going through a divorce. You must then provide 1 of the following documents:
    • Non-Conciliation Order
    • Copy of the document referring the matter to the family court
    • Proof from a lawyer that the procedure for divorce by mutual consent is ongoing
    • Judge's decision or protection order issued by the Family Court Judge (in case of emergency)
  • You're divorced. You must then provide the divorce decree or, in the case of divorce by mutual consent, the approved agreement.
  • Your Civil partnerships: titleContent is broken. You must then provide the birth certificate marked Civil partnerships dissolved.
  • Your husband passed away. You must then provide a copy of the death certificate or family record book.
  • You are a victim of violence within your couple, attested by the receipt of a complaint
  • You are married, a beneficiary of international protection and you live alone in France

Your Civil partnership or partner is hosted in Ehpad

If your spouse or partner Civil partnerships: titleContent is hosted in a Ehpad: titleContent, the accommodation costs which you pay may be deducted from your income.

You must make one application file per department

To obtain accommodation, you must make an application by department (except for the Île-de-France region).

For example, if you want a home in Aurillac (department 15) or Kourou (department 973) or Laon (department 02), you need to make 3 application files.

Reminder

For accommodation in Lyon or Marseille, you can ask for 1 or more districts, or indicate the whole city.

You must indicate all the people who will live in the accommodation:
  • Yourself (applicant)
  • Your co-applicant: Civil partnerships' or cohabiting spouse or partner, or a member of your family who is not dependent on you (only among these: grandfather, grandmother, mother, father, son, daughter, granddaughter, grandson, brother, sister)
  • People and children figurative on your tax notice or that of your co-applicant. These include children with disabilities of all ages, children under the age of 21 (including alternating care if declared at the home of each parent), students under the age of 25, and persons with a disability-inclusive mobility card (or disability card).
  • Children rights of access and accommodation

If you want to live with someone else whereas these, you will live together in the apartment in shared accommodation.

Your roommates may be:

  • family members (only from your cousin, cousin, aunt, uncle, nephew, niece)
  • or people who don't belong to your family (friends, co-workers...).

You must specify your roommates on your application for social housing. In addition, each of them has to apply for social housing, where all the other roommates are indicated.

The waiting time for social housing varies depending on the department requested. For each department, it is possible to know the abnormally long waiting time to obtain social housing.

The waiting time before a room is offered to you varies greatly. It depends in particular on the following:

  • Your personal situation (for example, the request of a person with a disability, poorly housed, without housing, threatened with eviction or victim of violence is a priority)
  • The type of accommodation (number of rooms, whether shared or not...) and the municipality requested. You can consult the number of social housing units for each municipality.
