Diákhitel Plusz deadline extended
The government has decided to extend the deadline for applying to "Diákhitel Plusz" credit, a one-time general-purpose loan, until June 30, 2022, Minister for Family and Youth Affairs Katalin Novák said after a meeting of the Operative Corps in charge of coordinating the restart of community life, writes portfolio.hu.
Diákhitel Plusz, a HUF 500,000 interest-free loan, will once again be available to students in higher education from October 1, Novák said. Since its introduction in 2020, there have been some 40,000 applications for the loan, she added.
Novák also said that the government had accepted the corps' proposal that Hungarians studying in the United Kingdom be allowed to continue to draw on their student loans post-Brexit.
The minister said the government decided to simplify the rules of its Home Purchase Subsidy Scheme for Families (CSOK), and couples will have until June 30, 2022, to have as many children as they have committed to when applying for the subsidies.
The government support scheme for home renovations is also being expanded to cover developments to help autistic people and those hard of hearing, build outdoor stairs around homes, and do electrical works outside of houses.
