public aid “MyPrimeAdapt'” to adapt housing to aging and loss of autonomy will see the light of day on January 1, 2024, promised the Minister Delegate for Cities and Housing, Olivier Klein.
“From January 1, 2024, we will set up a new unique aid, MaPrimeAdapt’, deployed by Anah (National Housing Agency, editor’s note) instead of current aid”said Tuesday, October 11 Olivier Klein during a conference devoted to the economy of seniors in Paris.
Citizens aged 70 and over
MaPrimeAdapt’, modeled on the energy renovation aid MaPrimeRénov’, aims to centralize aid for the adaptation of housing to make it more readable and accessible. She “should be centered on our fellow citizens aged 70 and over, with modest and very modest incomes, in a preventive and unconditional logic” of loss of autonomy, explained Olivier Klein. “And with incentive aid to reduce the remaining charge as much as possible. »
“Let’s not forbid ourselves to explore other avenues when we experience a situation of disability or, from the age of 60, an early loss of autonomy”he added. “We need to be present upstream, even before the loss of autonomy becomes a daily reality”.
MaPrimeAdapt’ was first mentioned in 2021 by the previous minister, Emmanuelle Wargon, then taken up by Emmanuel Macron in his presidential program. According to INSEE, France should have 18.3 million inhabitants aged 65 and over in 2040, or 26.4% of the population, compared to 14 million in 2021 (20.7%).
