The National Project “Housing and Urban Environment”
The Housing and Urban Environment national project is designed to increase the volumes of residential construction, to improve the mechanisms for financing this sector, to enable people to move from old inadequate accommodations to modern comfortable apartments and houses, and to carry out urban landscaping measures on a massive scale. Also, mortgage loans must become much more accessible. The project places special emphasis on managing urban environment in small towns and historical settlements. Contests are to be held annually to select the best projects for safeguarding the distinctive features and the culture of Russia.
