The Caisse des Allocations Familiales (CAF) supports people with low income to pay a part of their rent, through different program of housing benefits.
As a Cité internationale resident, you can apply to the ALS benefit, whose rate amounts 90/100€ per month. Residents of Lila and Quai de Loire halls, you can benefit from the APL benefit, whose rate varies according to your personal income.
If you work, have a PhD or post-doctoral research contract you might not be eligible to this housing benefit since its rate is based on your income.
To learn more about ALS and APL and apply online, come and meet the CAF staff until November 25, 2015 at the Maison Internationale. This desk is held as part of the 2015 Foreign Student Welcome Service.
Où ? SAEE, Room Nathan, basement of the Maison Internationale. More info available here.
When ? Until November 25, 2015, from Monday to Friday, from 9am to 4.30pm
