Networks of housing and community services will be repaired at the expense of the National Welfare Fund

Funding from the National Wealth Fund (NWF) will be used to repair boiler rooms and replace heating networks. One of the first to improve are residents of Murmansk and Nizhny Novgorod regions and Yakutia.

The government approved funding for the construction and renovation of public services by the National Welfare Department. But preparations for its use began last year: the federal commission for regional development considered the first applications from the regions. So, 386.6 million rubles will be spent on the renovation of the boiler room in Olenegorsk. The percentage of social infrastructure here will decrease by 55%, and the cost of repairing networks – by 25%. In addition, energy costs will be reduced, environmental impact will be reduced, and 14.4 million rubles will be allocated to the budget for taxes. In Yakutia, 273.3 million rubles from the National Welfare Fund will be used to renew heating networks and build home boiler rooms. The capacity of the boiler rooms will increase by 1.5 times, and can be connected to 254 private apartments and three social areas.

In the coming years, up to 150 billion rubles from the National Welfare Fund will be allocated for the renovation of buildings and social services. The loans are in the form of long-term loans at 3% per annum for 25 years provided by the Housing and Utilities Reform Assistance Fund. According to information in the budget, the funds will go to projects in the areas of heating, water supply and sanitation, as well as storm sewers. This year it is planned to allocate at least 105 billion rubles. The Fund has approved the first proposals for 22 projects for 41,6 billion rubles, including the size of the proposed loans – about 33 billion rubles (the co-financing is expected). Most of the requests came from Tatarstan (4), Murmansk region (3), Belgorod, Nizhny Novgorod, Sakhalin, Tomsk and Yakutia regions, Kaluga, Chelyabinsk, Primorye, North Ossetia region. and Chechnya.

In the regions of Chechnya, Nizhny Novgorod and Tomsk, for example, it is planned to renew the heat supply systems. In Belgorod and Chelyabinsk – treatment areas, in Tatarstan to build a water pipeline and pumping station.

Funding for housing and social services for many years was based on the balance program, says Pavel Sklyanchuk, an expert in the ONF project “Housing and urban environment”. In the state budget, the share of spending on social infrastructure is less than 2%, or 322 billion rubles. “Since almost 80% of the institutions are financed from regional and municipal budgets, 1.3 trillion rubles are poured every year into the system of housing and social services that are working hard , or not enough to improve the urban economy”, says the expert. grade

For many years, housing and social services were paid for on a balance basis.

Recently, the situation has changed for the better – the so-called “structural budget” appeared – these are loans of 150 billion from the NWF, the release of structural bonds for 300 billion, and bank loans in the region of 500 billion rubles. . In other words, about one billion rubles have been allocated to the government for the next few years to improve the city’s infrastructure.
