Subvention for the formation of the AH infrastructure is provided for the creation and modernisation of the infrastructure of amalgamated hromadas and may be directed to new construction, reconstruction, overhaul and development of communally owned infrastructure facilities (including for the preparation of design and urban planning documentation).

In 2016, during the first budget year of existence of AHs in Ukraine, the State Budget envisaged allocation of UAH 1 billion subvention for hromadas’ infrastructure development. Subvention funds were distributed among 159 AHs according to a clear formula: depending on the number of rural population and hromada size. The Chernivtsi Oblast, despite being the smallest in terms of area and population, became the eighth in terms of funding, attracting more than UAH 45 million for the infrastructure of AHs.
