It is reported portal Gazeta.ua.
The most painful problems of youth in Ukraine today is the unavailability of housing and difficulties with employment. Often due to this young Ukrainians looking for a better life abroad, and the state loses potential employable, active citizens. That is why it is essential to lay the draft state budget for 2019 funds for reconstruction programs of preferential crediting of youth habitation.
This was stated by the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on family matters, youth policy, sports and tourism, the people’s Deputy from “Blow” Arthur Ward when considering the results of the effectiveness of the implementation of the State program for youth housing on 2013-2017.
According to Ward, in 2015, the state completely stopped the funding for preferential loans to young families for construction and purchase of housing. Now funded only those loans that the government provided to young people for 2003-2014
“It is clear that in such conditions we cannot speak about the effectiveness of the state youth policy in Ukraine. Because the first thing a young family – need their own homes. If the state does not provide, this generates other problems: the deterioration of the demographic situation in the country, emigration of young specialists abroad, the uncertainty of youth in their own future. Our Committee annually appeals to Cabinet with a request to allocate funds from the state budget for the programs of youth lending. This year we are determined to achieve a positive result, ” – said the MP.
Ward added that according to experts, for the effective functioning of the programs of the youth housing loans need to annually allocate funds in an amount not less than UAH 1 billion.
“I realize that this is a big sum, but if you want tools you can find. First should be understanding on the part of officials and the Executive branch to prioritize care for the young generation as an investment in the future of our state “, – said the Deputy.
