A housing subsidy implies the
mechanism of non-repayable targeted compensation by the State for expenses of
citizens on payment of housing and communal services bills and do not require a
refund. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman announced at the
conference call dedicated to considering the progress of implementation of the housing
subsidy programme on Tuesday.
Regarding grants for reimbursement for housing and communal
services, the Head of Government noted that unscrupulous politicians were
spreading false rumors that the citizens would allegedly
have to repay the granted costs, or that the Government’s increase of the
minimum wage up to UAH 3200 would affect the eligibility for housing subsidy program benefits.
"Ukrainian citizens should understand that part of the
money is paid by the state as a specific compensation for a particular
Ukrainian family", said the Prime Minister.
Thus, for the
majority of the citizens of Ukraine the bills for housing and communal services
as compared to last year will not change, on the contrary, in certain cases will
even be reduced, explained Volodymyr Groysman, adding all those trying to profit
from this situation should think about people first.
