Individual aids for people with disabilities, aimed at improving their quality of life and their social integration, within the Concerted Plan of Basic Benefits of Social Services of the City Council of La Laguna (Tenerife). The subsidies are focused in the prevention of disorders, the compensation of the total or partial cost of goods and services to improve the autonomy, the elimination of physical barriers and the financing of training to support the labour and professional integration of people with disabilities. The deputy mayor and head of the Social Welfare area (responsible of these aids) assured that these grants are a fundamental support for people with disabilities of La Laguna during the social and economic crisis caused by the pandemic.
The criteria to access to these subsidies are: to be citizen of Spain or other EU member (or to have permit of residence) with disabilities living in La Laguna (Tenerife) for six or more months, with a maximum monthly income of the family unit of €537.84 (the amount of the Public Indicator of Multiple Effects Income), not being the owner of properties (excepting their houses) and, in the case of applicants for aid for training, certificates of the need for training actions. The City Council of La Laguna has allocated €60,000 for all grants. The maximum individual aid for training actions is €200.
The measure does not estimate the potential number of beneficiaries. Considering the very strict eligibility criteria, the number of beneficiaries should be very low.
