Kyiv teachers will be able to use the "Affordable housing" program with the help of financial support from Kyiv authorities, acting chairman of the Kyiv city state administration Oleksandr Popov told a press conference, ForUm correspondent reports.

According to the official, the apartment queue numbers 180 thousand people, and two thousand of the total are workers in the education sphere. "We will follow President's initiative on "Affordable housing" program, which provides 3% mortgage for 15 years. However, we understand that the majority of pedagogues cannot take part in the program, as their family incomes do not meet bank's requirements. To solve the problem we are ready to finance a part of the down payment from the local budget," Popov said.

The official explained that Kyiv authorities plan on rendering one-time financial assistance to state teachers and workers of communal services with their down payments. "The percentage will depend on the number of years a person worked for the state. 20% of the down payment is the maximum share the local budget will finance for those who has worked for 10 years and more," Popov specified.

According to the acting mayor it is quite possible to find these kind of money in the local budget, especially when the land privatization ban is about to be lifted. "We can sell some of Kyiv land at good price in order to finance our initiative," the official said and added that this year teachers might receive already 100 apartments.
