Amalgamated Communities are Ready to Use Almost 80% of the Government Grant for Infrastructure

As of 25 July 2016, the Ministry of Regional Development has already received 885 applications from 149 amalgamated communities, which applications pertain to the infrastructure projects that will be implemented for account of the government grant. The aggregate amount required for the implementation of the submitted projects totals approximately UAH 792 million (~79 % of the total amount of the government grant).

So far, the Commission established at the Ministry of Regional Development has approved 772 applications for projects for more than UAH 677 million (~63 %).

50 applications were sent back for improvement, 63 will be considered today at the meeting of the Commission.

The greater part of the government grant is still remaining without applications for projects in Rivne Oblast (the applications are submitted for 37.1% of the government grant amount), and Kyiv Oblast failed to submit any applications.

Earlier, First Deputy Minister of Regional Development, Construction and Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine Viacheslav Nehoda said it was inadmissible that the amalgamated communities delayed the development of their own infrastructure.

It is a reminder that the government grant in the amount of UAH1 billion was provided for in the State Budget to the amalgamated territorial communities for the development of their infrastructure in 2016. The funds of the government grant will be distributed among 159 amalgamated communities according to a clear formula depending on the number of rural population and the area of the community. That is UAH 960 thousand for the smallest amalgamated community and up to UAH 23 million, for the largest one.
