Households have the opportunity to choose: the more profitable to use when paying housing and communal services during the heating season - a benefit or subsidy. If the family has the right to a subsidy, but its size is small and it is more expedient to take advantage of the privilege that a family member has, then it is necessary to apply to the social security body to stop the subsidy.

And vice versa: if it is more profitable to use a subsidy for the heating season, then it is necessary to submit an application for its appointment.

The grounds for granting the privilege are the certificate, where the category of the privilege is specified and what discount on payment for housing and communal services is established by the state for this category. In the case of preferential payment for the receipt of services, residents receive, taking into account the discount.

The main categories of beneficiaries are:

- participants in the war (50% discount);

- members of the families of the deceased (veterans) of the war veterans (50% discount);

- persons who have special and special labor merits to their Motherland, their widows (widowers) (100% discount);

- participants of fighting (75% discount);

- Persons with disabilities due to war (100% discount);

- Liquidators of the Chernobyl accident and victims of the Chernobyl accident in categories 1 and 2 (50% discount);

- Victims of Nazi persecution (discount from 50 to 100%);

- children of the war (25% discount).

Earlier, the head of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov instructed to inform the region's population as much as possible: who, according to new criteria, is entitled to a subsidy when paying for housing and communal services and how to make it.
