According to the will of the SPD parliamentary group in the Bundestag, the housing allowance is to increase in the coming year through an earlier increase in rates and through new calculation methods. The housing policy spokesman for the SPD parliamentary group, Bernhard Daldrup, told the German Press Agency that it was about “early dynamization” and the integration of a climate and heating cost component. Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) announced on Friday a “major housing benefit reform” in view of the increasing burdens on citizens. Details initially remained open.
