The size of the sum of money for the birth or adoption of a child will increase from 1862 to 2134 rubles from January 1, 2022. The allowance for women registered with medical institutions in the early stages of pregnancy will also be doubled - to 242 rubles. These initiatives of the President were considered by the Committee on Social Policy.
The President proposed to keep the status of "large family" for large families, the children of which are fully supported by the state. Such families will retain the entire package of social support. The Committee on Social Policy at its meeting supported these initiatives of Vadim Krasnoselsky and will recommend to the Supreme Council at the next plenary meeting to adopt the law-in-draft in two readings at once.
In addition, the relevant committee positively assessed the legislative initiative of the Government. It proposes to expand the categories of recipients of subsidies for the purchase of housing. We are talking about young specialists from budgetary organizations.
It is proposed starting from the New Year to extend the provision of the law "On state support of young families for the purchase of housing" to teachers, library staff, and employees of cultural centers.
