In the Odessa region, housing subsidies for more than 136 thousand families have been assigned according to new criteria. This became known during the hardware meeting of the Odessa Regional State Administration.

"The government has changed the procedure for calculating subsidies, and according to the instructions that I provided in October last year, people needed to be informed about new criteria. Thus, out of the 30,000 families that were previously refused, 19,000 have already applied for payment, of which 15,500 have been allocated to the subsidy. This is the social care of the vulnerable population, which President Poroshenko emphasizes. This is an important work to be actively pursued, "said Maxim Stepanov, the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration.

In addition, the Director of the Department of Social and Family Policy of the Regional State Administration Liliya Kovalenko noted that Odessa Oblast is currently ready for monetization. "Regional Department of Social Security opened the relevant accounts. Also, the appointment of subsidies continues to those people whose appeal is still in progress ", - said Lilia Kovalenko.

Recall the Cabinet of Ministers approved a resolution on granting housing subsidies to the population in cash. As a result, monetization will begin on January 1 for those who will issue it this year. For other donors, it will start on May 1. To do this, you will need to apply to the appropriate management. As a result of monetization, residents will be able to get saved money.
