Housing assistance

There are two types of assistance: personalised housing assistance (APL) and social housing allowance (ALS).
The amount of assistance varies according to your income, the amount of rent and the size of the property. The allowance can be up to half the amount of your rent. The Caisse d'Allocations Familiales (CAF) will only pay you the money once your application has been submitted and processed.

You will need the following documents to complete your application:

  • a photocopy of an identity document (residence permit or residence authorisation for more than 3 months for foreign students),
  • the rent receipt in your name,
  • a photocopy of the lease or rental agreement, which must be in your name,
  • a bank statement,
  • proof of income (in euros).

Apply to the Caisse d'Allocations Familiales :
6, rue Saint-Charles
