Gov't spends HUF 15 bln on worker's hostels
Workers' apartments are being built with non-refundable support, and the program is implemented in the first instance together with local governments, State Secretary for Employment Policy Sándor Bodó at the Ministry for Innovation and Technology (ITM) told TV news channel M1.
He said 15 hostels had been handed over so far, and another 32 are under construction. He explained that the government has already spent almost HUF 15 billion on workers' hotels, for which non-refundable support is given, and the implementation is strictly controlled.
He explained that many old military buildings or abandoned farm buildings remained in the ownership of municipalities and offered the possibility of becoming workers' accommodation.
In addition to local governments, businesses can also apply for funding for this purpose.
