As a tenant or a rommate in a residence managed by "Les Belles Années", you are eligible to receive a rent allowance (Allocation Logement à caractère Social) (ALS) from the Family Allowance Office (Caisse d'Allocations Familiales) (CAF).
The amount of the rent allowance varies according to:
You become eligible for your rent allowance on the first day of the month following your arrival in the apartment. For example, if you move into your new apartment on 5th September, your entitlement begins on 1st October and you will receive your rent allowance the following month, on 5th November.
To avoid losing any rent allowance payments you should submit your application as soon as the lease is signed.
Application forms downloaded from www.caf.fr mention the date of the request which is then used to calculate the starting date of the allowance.
When I came to Lyon, I did not know anybody, and "Les Belles Années" residences seemed like a very friendly place to live.

A daily presence
The presence of a residence manager reassures me, we can always count on her.
