B-MINCOME is a comprehensive policy for fighting poverty and social exclusion. That means it combines a passive public policy (in the form of a benefit known as municipal inclusion support) with four active socio-occupational policies (training and employment, social economy, fostering room-renting and participation in community networks). This should enable B-MINCOME to improve the socio-economic situation of participating households.
A draw will be held among the nearly 5,000 households that could potentially take part to choose the 1,000 in the treatment groups, as well as those participating in the active policies (550 households) and those receiving the benefit without having to take part in those policies (450 households).
The City Council will notify potential participants that they have the opportunity to take part in B-MINCOME. Later, the participants will have to give their active consent to taking part in the pilot project.
