The total amount to be allocated amounts to 500 million euros, together with the subsidy of 25 cents per liter at the pump, a measure that will initially apply until the end of the year, without excluding, if conditions require it to be extended.

Beneficiaries of the allowance this year are approximately 1.3 million households, while last year it was slightly less than 900 thousand and this because assets have expanded, while the basis for the asset criterion will also increase, due to the increase in objective values. The highest amount a household can receive is 800 euros, up from 750 euros last year, and the lowest is 100 euros, the same as last year.

However, in the event that someone wants to receive twice the amount, then the criterion is 14,000 euros for the unmarried and 20,000 euros for the married.
