The government will launch a close to HUF 200 billion European Union-funded program to boost employment among Hungarians under 30 on April 15, state secretary for employment policy Sándor Czomba said on Wednesday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The scheme, which will include support for wages, rent, and commuting costs, as well as for training, could help around 84,000 young Hungarians find work in 2024-2029.

The program will cover half of the employers' payroll costs, up to a monthly HUF 250,000, for new hires under 30 for up to six months in some cases.

It will make up to HUF 186,760 a month available for rent support for potential hires who live more than 60 km away from work.

New hires who opt to commute can get HUF 13,340 in support for every 10km they need to travel to work.
