Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

It is best that you contact the housing service or housing provider that is administering the subsidy in order to find out how the subsidy is considered.

Some providers consider it as social assistance and others may not.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
