At the request of Stéphane Lenormand, Member of Parliament for the archipelago, and Bernard Briand, President of the Territorial Council, the Minister Delegate for Overseas Territories confirmed the renewal of the State's financial support to the Territorial Collectivity of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon for households most affected by the increase in the price of heating oil, announced a joint press release from the Prefecture of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon and the Territorial Collectivity of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon.
Nearly 750,000€ of fuel aid, brought to 626,000€ for the State share and 122,000€ for the CT share, were paid to households in the archipelago, with an amount per household ranging from 200€ to 800€ depending on the tax bracket. This renewal of fuel aid will be carried out under the same conditions for this year.
The climatic conditions of the archipelago as well as the lack of long-term visibility of the evolution of heating oil prices have led the deputy of the archipelago, Stéphane Lenorman, to ask for the renewal of the aid.Stéphane Lenormand and the president of the territorial council, Bernard Briand, to request the renewal of the support system deployed in 2022 in Saint-Pierre and Miquelon.
This new aid will be deployed from early April by the territorial authority for the benefit of households in the archipelago.
