Amalgamated Communities Received 100% of the Government Grant for Infrastructure

All of the 159 amalgamated territorial communities to which the government grant was allocated for the development of infrastructure facilities in the amount of UAH 1 billion received 100% of those funds to their treasury accounts.

As of 22 December 2016, the Expert Commission at the Ministry of Regional Development has approved 1,383 applications filed by 159 amalgamated territorial communities for infrastructure development projects which will be implemented on account of the government grant. The aggregate amount required for the implementation of the approved projects totals approximately UAH 993.8 million (~99.4 % of the total amount of the government grant).

"The Government has fulfilled its obligations to the amalgamated communities regarding the support for their infrastructure. The funds of the government grant were received on a timely basis and in accordance with the schedule, the applications for projects were considered by the expert commission very promptly. On the next week, we will have the results of use of the funds of government grant by the amalgamated communities", First Deputy Minister of Regional Development, Construction and Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine Viacheslav Nehoda noted.

It is a reminder that the government grant in the amount of UAH 1 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 were distributed among 159 amalgamated communities which were established in 2015, 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.
