The New Taipei City Government is offering a rent subsidy program for young people living near MRT stations this year. The program is expected to provide subsidies to 200 applicants, and 68 slots are still available. The requirements for applying have also been relaxed, and applications are being accepted again. Single young people no longer have to provide copies of household registration documents from their next of kin to prove that they are registered for the same household.

New Taipei City’s Urban and Rural Development Department Commissioner Chang Fan says that applicants only have to fill out their parents’ national ID numbers, which allows the agency in charge to find all of the relevant financial and tax data that it needs.

The subsidy is aimed at helping young people between 20 and 40 years of age who work or go to school in New Taipei City to live in an administrative area with an MRT station, train station, or a bus line with a route that includes an MRT station. Applicants must not own a house or have parents who own a house in New Taipei City or Taipei, and must have an annual income that meets the necessary requirements in order to obtain the monthly rent subsidy of NT$2,000 for up to 12 months.

The bureau’s Housing Development Division Chief Chang Shou-wen says that the current second round for accepting applications ends on March 14. Go to https://rent.planning.ntpc.gov.tw for more information.
