Students to receive rental subsidy for living, moving to Sderot and Gaza border

Students who live or move to Sderot and the Gaza border region will be able to receive a monthly grant towards their accommodation rental from the Ministry for the Development of the Negev and the Galilee for this coming academic year.

The initiative is part of efforts to rehabilitate the region after last year’s war against Hamas in Gaza in which some 4,500 rockets and mortars were fired at Israel, while Hamas terror cells attempted to infiltrate into Israel from Gaza, causing thousands of people to flee the immediate vicinity of the war.

A total of 720 students who decide to live in Sderot or the various towns in the regional council districts of Hof Ashkelon, Sdot Hanegev, Sha’ar Hanegev and Eshkol will be eligible for NIS 500 a month towards their rent payments for the coming academic year.
