foto 2023iii habitatgeThe Office of Housing of the Consell de Formentera reports that yesterday the Governing Board approved a line of aid for islanders with monthly rent payments of up to €1,200. The assistance will be granted for a maximum of 12 months and calculated for the period extending 1 January to 31 December 2022.

Rafael Ramírez, housing councillor, said that the assistance, the third of its kind this legislature, "will make it easier for Formentera residents to stay in rental housing, and alleviate the negative effects of rising rents on our island". "This help has been tailored and made more flexible to reach as many people as possible", he added.

Up to €2,640
Assistance will not exceed €2,640, or €220 in individual monthly disbursements. The money is for renters and will be granted non-competitively and based on the established figures. Disbursements will be reduced proportionally if total awards exceed the related budget appropriation.

Consell gives space to Island Directorate of State to offer Immigration Office service on Formentera

foto 2023iii estrangeriaToday Ana Juan, president of the Consell de Formentera; Enrique Sánchez Navarrete, insular director of the State Administration on Eivissa and Formentera, and Rafael Ramírez, social welfare councillor, presented the once monthly service that the Immigration Office (Oficina de Extranjería) will offer from today on Formentera in a space provided by the Office of Social Welfare. The initiative is part of La Administracion cerca de ti, a project of the Ministry of Territorial Policy and the Spanish Federation of Municipalities.

According to President Juan, "collaboration between administrations is essential to facilitate digital handling of services. One example is Formentera's Office of Justice, which reduces travel, delivers a more agile and accessible service, and ultimately improves the quality of life of our citizens".

According to Mr Sánchez, "today we have started with the Immigration Office of the Island Directorate of the State, which in one day has served 11 people; for future visits, the intention is to include the Public State Employment Service (SEPE) and, based on the results and available resources, to add other services". Sánchez also underscored efforts currently afoot with the Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) to offer DGT services on our island.

Sánchez framed the initiative on Formentera as "part of a national plan to make the administration more accessible and deliver a boost to e-Government". The Island Directorate of the State described the aim as "cementing periodic visits for assorted services, like the National Police offer for national IDs (DNI) and other services".
