The Treasury proposes to improve financing to the CCAA that receive students from other territories


The Ministry of Finance has kicked off the negotiation of the future regional financing model with the presentation of its proposal on the criteria that should guide the distribution of funds from the common fund, what has been called the debate on the definition of ‘adjusted population’. The approach of the department that directs Maria Jesus Montero advocates reinforcing the financing of health, education and social services compared to the rest of non-essential services provided by the autonomous communities and introduces some novelty such as the possibility of reinforce funding for autonomous communities that receive higher vocational training or university students from other territories.

The measure was already raised in the experts’ report, which questioned the exclusion of university education from the criteria for the distribution of funds aimed at financing education – which today only directly defray the cost of education. public education from 0 to 16 years old – and at first it seems benefit the most populated autonomous communities, which are the ones with the largest network of university centers and which tend to host students from other less populated regions and with a lesser implantation of university education.

The Treasury proposal at this point is not closed. In principle, it advocates a mixed system that rewards the CCAA for the number of university students registered in their territory, but also establish some type of correction or extra funding for the ‘receiving’ autonomies for which the arrival of university students from other regions also represents an expense. However, it raises two other options for the debate: the possibility of distributing the funds exclusively according to the number of higher education students (university and vocational training) registered in an autonomous community or, on the contrary, to do so exclusively by the number of enrolled in a territory.
