Government spends HUF 15 billion on youth hostels


The workers’ apartments are built with non-refundable support and the program is implemented in the first place with local governments, said State Secretary for Employment Policy Sándor Bodó at the Ministry of Innovation and Technology (ITM) on the M1 information channel.

He said 15 hostels have been handed over so far and 32 more are under construction. He explained that the government has already spent nearly HUF 15 billion on workers’ hotels, for which grants are granted, and that implementation is tightly controlled.

He explains that many old military buildings or abandoned farm buildings remain the property of the municipalities and offer the possibility of becoming workers’ housing.

In addition to local governments, companies can also apply for funding for this purpose.
