Bashkiria was among the first 14 regions of the country whose utility the Russian Government approved infrastructure modernization programs. This was reported in the press service of the Government of the Russian Federation.
The Government has developed a new tool for financing housing and communal services development, allowing the country to improve at least 100 areal facilities and replace up to 8 thousand kilometers of engineering networks.
As Bashinform News Agency reported, the first 30 billion rubles were allocated as part of a new program for modernizing communal infrastructure systems.
“We have already approved the programs of 14 subjects, to which about 16 billion rubles will be allocated from the Territorial Development Fund,” said Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin.
“Following the results of the implementation of regional programs in the first two years, the quality of public services will improve for about 450,000 citizens. And in general, the residents of the whole country will feel the effect of infrastructure modernization,” the Deputy Prime Minister noted.
As Ilshat Shagiakhmetov, Director General of the Territorial Development Fund, specified, the focus will be on modernizing linear facilities: water supply, heat supply, and sanitation networks.
The regions and the Territorial Development Fund form programs for modernizing communal infrastructure. These programs’ activities aim to update facilities with the highest accident rate and are synchronized with other federal and regional programs.
A new program for the modernization of communal infrastructure has been launched on behalf of the President. It is designed for 2023–2027 and will be implemented under five-year integrated regional programs.
In 2023-2024, it is planned to allocate 130 billion rubles from the federal budget to implement the program.
