For the Moscow region, 2.6 billion rubles will be allocated for the construction of a water supply system on the territory of residential buildings, as well as the construction of a polyclinic. The Penza Region will receive an IBC in the amount of about 1 billion rubles for the construction of roads in the new microdistrict. A loan of 633 million rubles was approved for the Kaluga Region to create a large-scale logistics center – the megahaba of Russian Post JSC.

During the meeting, applications for participation in the selection of construction projects and (or) reconstruction of infrastructure facilities using bonds of specialized project finance companies were also considered and approved. Thus, the legal commission approved the application of the Sakhalin Region for the use of the infrastructure bonds mechanism with a loan of 5.4 billion rubles. The funds will go to the development of power supply engineering networks and road infrastructure in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, which will make it possible to introduce about 0.3 million sq. m of housing.
The meeting also considered the application of the Republic of Tatarstan for a loan from the Housing and Utilities Fund. The region received a loan in the amount of 12.3 billion rubles for the construction of sewerage and water supply systems. Thus, out of a total of 150 billion rubles provided for financing using the infrastructure bonds mechanism, about 11.8 billion rubles have been allocated.
