Feature of the subsidy

It is noted that the peculiarity of the subsidy is that its size will take into account the cost of rent in a certain region or populated city of the country. After all, the price of rent in Kyiv, Nikolaev, Transcarpathia or in a small locality is significantly different.

In addition, the size of the subsidy will depend on:

    the number of persons in the family renting housing; household income; ability to pay rent bills without help from others.

The lower the income, the higher the percentage of the rental cost will be covered by the subsidy.

At the first stage, the introduction of a rental subsidy is planned for internally displaced persons. In the future, this support tool may be available to other citizens who need such assistance from the state.

Currently, this draft decision is being agreed within the government and with interested authorities. The Ministry of Social Policy expects that after the approval of the relevant government decision, IDPs will be able to take advantage of a new support tool for them as early as June.
