Family support spending to grow to HUF 2,600 bn in 2021

Government support for families will grow to 2,600 billion forints (EUR 7.1m) in 2021, two-and-a-half times the sum allocated to the sector in 2010, the minister without portfolio in charge of families said on Sunday.

The government’s family protection scheme, which is being continued despite the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, has helped over 220,000 families so far, they said in a statement. Some 130,000 couples have applied for prenatal baby support, and the government has so far allocated 47 billion forints for car purchases of large families. Over 18,000 families have applied for home purchase subsidies, at a total value of 155 billion forints, they said.
