In 2022, Russia will launch a long-term program to improve the digital literacy of the country’s residents. The rules for providing state support for the development and implementation of a new project were approved by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

The program will create new educational services for various groups of citizens, including students, pensioners and children.

Organizations that have already implemented projects in the field of digital literacy will be able to apply for a subsidy for the development and implementation of the program. State support will be provided based on the results of the competitive selection. It will be carried out by the Ministry of Digital Development.

In total, until 2024, 600 million rubles will be allocated to subsidize the program – 200 million rubles annually. Financing is provided in the federal budget within the framework of the federal project “Information Security” of the national program “Digital Economy”.

Earlier, the launch of the new program was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko. According to him, personal digital literacy is becoming an important condition for working in an online environment. “Visiting unsafe sites, the inability to recognize frankly fraudulent activities on the network bring serious trouble to the user,” he said.

The document will be published.
