The government decided to stimulate the demand for prefabricated wooden houses. To do this, their production is subsidized. Home manufacturers get help from the state, and buyers – discounts.

As Mikhail Mishustin said during a meeting with his deputies on Monday, the government has prepared a decree on the procedure for granting subsidies to manufacturers of wooden houses. To receive a federal grant, you must enter the Department of Industry and Commerce competition. Admittedly, not everyone can participate. For this, entrepreneurs must meet a number of conditions. First of all, the price of a wooden factory house should not exceed 3.5 million rubles, and the production facilities of the enterprise should be located in Russia. The second condition: buyers of such houses must receive a discount of up to 10% of the cost price. And so that the discount does not turn out to be an empty sound, it must be recorded in the contract with the buyer.

The government promises to allocate at least 300 million rubles a year for subsidies.

“Such measures will give people more opportunities to buy their own homes and support the demand for prefabricated wooden houses, while preserving jobs and employment in the industry,” said Mikhail Mishustin.

Mishustin recalled that the cabinet previously launched preferential mortgage programs, including for the construction of individual houses.

– It is important to reduce the cost per square meter so that citizens can buy affordable housing and the demand for construction products remains in the market, said the Prime Minister.

During the meeting with the prime minister, the rehabilitation and construction of schools was also discussed. As Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said, the school revision program will continue in 2023. For this, almost 67 billion rubles will be allocated from the treasury. As a result, more than 1,500 schools in Russia will be repaired by September. By comparison, 1,049 schools reopened after major repairs this year. After listening to Golikova’s report, Mishustin noted that the development of the whole country depends on the conditions under which children study and teachers work.
