The main function of the state is to maximally protect its socially vulnerable citizens, including by charging subsidies for payment for housing and communal services. This was stated during the hardware meeting by the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov.

"In the Odessa region, more than 136 thousand households receive subsidies. The average amount of assistance is about 750 hryvnia. Since March, monetization has begun - citizens receive "live" funds for payment of housing and communal services. This is one of the main functions of the state - to protect as much as possible its citizens who need it ", - said Maxim Stepanov.

He instructed the Department of Social and Family Policy of the RSA to continue informational and enlightening work among the population regarding the program of housing subsidies. "It is necessary to continue work on informing the population, regardless of the heating season. Citizens need to know: what they are entitled to and how to get this help ", - added Maxim Stepanov.

Recall that since March, the payment of cash subsidies to those citizens whom it was appointed in 2018 began. They will receive the entire amount of aid in their hands and can independently pay for gas consumed in February, electricity, water and heat. A monetized subsidy that will remain after paying for communal services in the event of savings in consumed services can be used at the discretion of the household.
