April 8 at a briefing in the press center of the Government, First Vice Minister of Industry and Infrastructure Development Kairbek Uskenbayev spoke about the implementation of the housing assistance mechanism for large and low-income families.

As Uskenbayev noted, today there are 340 thousand large families in the country, of which more than 31 thousand are registered in akimats as needing housing (as of Jan. 1, more than 28 thousand families).

Each year, the regions will be allocated 50 billion tenge for the construction and purchase of rental housing for large families. This will provide 6 thousand large families annually, and until 2025 — 40 thousand large families will get the opportunity to become owners of rental housing.

May 1, 2013, 249 houses have already been given. Yesterday, May 7, 10 apartments were given for large families in Semey and Ust-Kamenogorsk. By the end of May 2019, it is planned to provide housing for 1,200-1,300 large families.

“We have a schedule for the issuance of housing. For example, May 9, the large families of the West Kazakhstan region, the city of Shymkent, will receive the keys to their apartments. May 25 — Atyrau region and the city of Almaty,” informed Uskenbayev.

As an additional measure, through JSC Housing Construction Savings Bank, in June 2019, it is planned to launch concessional lending to large, incomplete families, as well as families with children with disabilities. These loans will be provided at the rate of 2% per annum, for a period of up to 20 years, with an initial contribution of 10%. Part of the down payment may be covered by a housing certificate.

For the implementation of this mechanism, it is planned to allocate 150 billion tenge for three years. This will ensure the annual issuance of 6 thousand loans, 56 thousand loans will be issued within 25 years.

Uskenbaev also reminded that mothers who received the title Altyn Alka, Kumіs Alka, Mother Heroine are legally a separate category and given priority right to housing for large families.

In the framework of the Nurly Zher state program, a norm has been introduced on the distribution of rental housing, respectively, to the funds provided for in the republican and local budgets for the relevant year.

“These are the first results of the work on the issuance of housing to large families. We keep this work on a constant basis. The order of Elbasy to provide large families with housing will be fully implemented. Large families waiting for housing today, until 2025 will receive it from the state. This year alone, 12 thousand families will settle in their apartments (6 thousand at the expense of all sources and 6 thousand at the expense of concessional lending through the Housing Construction Bank). Thus, in 3-4 years we plan to solve the problem of large families in need of housing completely,” said Uskenbayev.
