The Family Minister announced on Saturday that more than 70,000 families have submitted applications for apartment renovation.
Families who have applied have already received grants totaling almost 100 billion forints (272 million euros), said Katalin Novák in a statement.
She noted that under the program launched in January, the government is offering families with at least one child to cover up to half of the renovation costs, with a maximum grant of 3 million forints. Families can take out a subsidized loan for the other half of the project costs.

Katalin Novák said the Orbán government had not only “distributed leaflets” before the elections, but rather implemented “well thought-out measures”
With the help of the subsidies, families have so far carried out renovation works worth a total of 277 billion forints, added Novák.
