Accredited companies may apply for a little more than HUF 50 billion in support to hire people living with disabilities by October 30, State Secretary for Social Affairs Attila Fülöp said.
The funding has been earmarked for 2022, Fülöp said, according to origo.hu.
About 160,000 people living with disabilities are employed in Hungary, most of them under market conditions.
Close to 400 companies, with 1,100 bases around the country, are accredited to have people living with disabilities on the payroll.
Around half of disabled people now have jobs, up from just 18% in 2010, Fülöp said.
