Youth issues have always been a priority of state policy. In particular, much attention is paid to the construction of housing, employment, and the implementation of new government programs.
The regional program "Zhas Shanyrak" was developed by the Akimat of Kostanay region together with the regional branch of JSC "Otbasy Bank". The goal is to assist young families and young professionals in purchasing housing. This is lending to young people for the purchase of housing at the expense of joint funds of the akimat and the bank. The program is designed for young people (namely specialists in popular industries) under the age of 35.
- This year the program will be implemented in a pilot mode on the territory of the city of Kostanay. 700 million tenge is required for these purposes, of which 350 million will be allocated at the expense of Otbasy Bank JSC. The rest are from the local budget. Thus, in the first year of the project, 50 applicants will be able to receive housing. In the future, we will expand the program and implement it throughout the region," said Akim of the region Archimedes Mukhambetov.
When implementing the state youth policy, special attention is paid to solving topical issues of youth.
Thus, according to the Business Roadmap, more than 100 young people have received grant support and subsidies since the beginning of the year.
More than 5 thousand young people received employment assistance within the framework of the National Entrepreneurship Development Project.
To ensure youth employment, the project "Zhasyl El" is being implemented, within the framework of which, as of August 1, more than 1 thousand young fighters were employed.
