In 2017, the state has supported the cities, rayons and amalgamated hromadas of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast by almost UAH 1 billion. The funds have been directed towards the development of territories and construction of infrastructure facilities, said Valentyn Reznichenko, head of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast State Administration.
“Decentralisation, initiated by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, is one of the most effective reforms. It demonstrates massive changes felt in every corner of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. Powers and financial resources are transferred to the ground, hromadas’ budgets have substantially increased. The result is seen in the implementation of infrastructure projects: school modernisation, construction of kindergartens, street lighting, repair of roads,” said Valentyn Reznichenko.
This year the state has allocated UAH 533.9 million to the social and economic development of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. In particular, the outpatient clinic is being renovated into the children’s inpatient consulting and diagnostic department in Nikopol at the expense of these funds. The bridge over the Vovcha river in Pavlohrad is undergoing a reconstruction, city park is being built in Vilnohirsk, and Karachuny Culture Club is being renovated in Kryvyi Rih.
Projects are also being implemented at the expense of the State Fund for Regional Development. UAH 212.6 million were used for the reconstruction of the oblast ophthalmological hospital, department of post-intensive and developmental care of neonates of the oblast perinatal centre, for renovation of the stadium of the children’s sports school in Kryvyi Rih and Heroyiv Square in Novomoskovsk.
The state has supported amalgamated hromadas of the oblast by UAH 135 million. The State Budget subvention was allocated for the construction of roads, renovation of schools and outpatient clinics, as well as water pipelines’ laying.
According to the monitoring of MinRegion, the state support for the Ukrainian hromadas’ development has increased by 30 times over the past three years – from UAH 0.5 billion to UAH 14.9 billion.
The Dnipropetrovsk Oblast is among the top five leaders in the establishment of amalgamated hromadas. Currently there are 57 AHs in the oblast.
