Housing funds granted to 600 large families in Sverdlovsk

A recent report from the Oblastnaya Gazeta stated that over 600 large families living in the Sverdlovsk region have recently accepted funds for new homes.

At of the beginning of March, 622 large families with children now have certificates that entitle them to social benefits for purchasing or building residential homes in the Sverdlovsk region’s primary market.

The regional government decides on the amount of social payment depending on how many children are in the family.

According to the Department of Information Policy of the Governor, most of the families that received the certificates had three or four children. One family even had five children.

"The elder son Dmitry [is] 14 years,” the head of the family said. “Until recently, all seven were huddled in a small room, which acquired the housing certificate. A year ago, we moved into a studio apartment, inherited from her grandmother. On social benefits, we are going to buy an apartment in Yekaterinburg. You have to think about the future of children.”
