Basic income: out of reach requirements
With the current Income of Citizenship off limits requirements that cut off people homeless
I for the CBI requirements are too hard to reach so homeless people can access.
If the intent of the legislature was to provide for a support measure for the poorest, with the legal text of the requirements needed to access CBI not permit Really.
The Law on Citizenship Income
The text reads article. 1 “as a key measure of active employment policy to guarantee the right to work, to combat poverty, inequality and social exclusion, and aimed at fostering the right to information, education, training and culture through policies to support economic and social inclusion of those at risk of marginalization in society and in the workplace ".
critical requirements in the Law on Citizenship Income
Although the guiding principles arise from good feelings, in practice we see that to apply for Income of Citizenship important requirement is the residence, very critical criterion for the marginalized. Precisely this fact is one of the most difficult to apply points to homeless; that's why fio.PSD considered it necessary to mobilize from the beginning at the Parliament.
The Battle of fio.PSD on CBI
Advocacy for Income of Citizenship with less restrictive requirements
Aware that the issue of residence is extremely important for people who want to protect fio.PSD, requests submitted vertevano exactly on 'real possibility of access to income of citizenship of the homeless. Also read Proposed amendments drawn up by Alliance against poverty
Because the residence is a difficult requirement
The Residence request for citizenship according to the decree Income (art.2, paragraph 1, letter) It must meet two criteria:
- be possessed by at least10 years
- be possessed consecutively in the last 2.
In practice it happens very often homeless people have intermittent periods of residence or that have Persian for some time. To overcome this problem has been instituted possibility of Fictitious residence, However, only just over 200 Municipalities of 8.000 they deliberate and truly established. Although the list of Fictitious Vie and the municipalities in which they are established is increasing, It can not disregard that this is a extent not enough to remedy the issue immediately. Precisely for this purpose it is performing a fio.PSD petition to allow even the homeless to obtain the CBI.

Access to the CBI
The second point concerns the question left open art.2, paragraph 2 decree, which reads “The cases of access to the measure referred to in paragraph 1 They can be integrated, in surplus hypothesis of available resources, a regulation issued pursuant to Article 17, paragraph 1, of the law 23 August 1988, n. 400, on the basis of poor socio-economic indicators that reflect the characteristics of multidimensionality of poverty and take into account, as well as the economic situation, also of social exclusion, disability, social and health deprivation, educational and housing
They can also be foreseen non-monetary measures to supplement the DRC, such measures in favor of the use of public transport, support at home, education and health protection”
This paragraph may be an opening for the homeless, as it recognizes that poverty is often the result of a complex web of issues that go beyond the lack of employment per se
It seems that there is still room for integrated support interventions for homeless people might qualify to the CBI
Support for Lease
A third point that we must clarify the economic benefit to the part of economic benefit intended to support for leasing (art. 3, paragraph 1, b).
Since the economic benefit provisions of the Decree also depends on housing needs and in this case from the rent, we wonder: even in the absence of rented dwellingand then in the presence of a extreme need housing, the economic benefit part can equally be requested and used just for lease, or if this part of the benefit is lost if at the time of the request for SAFC that requirement is not satisfied?
We look forward to answer… and will update this page as soon there will be news
