The Cabinet of Ministers has adopted a resolution to expand the “eRobota” non-refundable grant program, which will include separate areas specifically for veteran businesses.

Prime Minister Denys Shmygal stated this during a government meeting. According to him, we are talking about three main areas.

In the first direction, a veteran can receive a 250,000 hryvnia grant for his own business, provided that at least one job is created.

The second direction provides a grant of 500,000 hryvnias for a family member of a combatant, provided that at least two jobs are created in the new business. Co-financing under this program will be 70 to 30, that is, 70% is contributed by the state, 30% – by the new entrepreneur’s own funds.

The third direction is a 1 million hryvnia grant for a combatant, if he has already been an entrepreneur before and has been registered as an FLP for at least 3 years.

“The main condition for this grant is to create at least four jobs, of which at least two are provided for veterans or persons with disabilities due to the war. Here, as in the second program, co-financing will be 70 to 30,” the head of government added. .

According to Shmyhal, all applications for grants will be accepted through Diyu.

The “єRobota” program – what is known

As UNIAN reported earlier, in June 2022, the launch of a new government project on grant non-refundable support for new businesses was announced. An important focus of all programs under the project should be the creation of new jobs and the possibility of online registration of applications for grants. All programs are united under the common name “єRobota”.

Economy Minister Yulia Sviridenko said that the eJob government grant program would create more than 300,000 jobs in Ukraine.

In September, Denys Shmygal predicted that the government program “eRobota” would require funding in the amount of at least UAH 30 billion in 2023, part of which is planned to be allocated from the state budget.

At the end of December, the Cabinet of Ministers allocated another UAH 400 million under the “eRobota” program for the development of horticulture, the construction of greenhouses and micro-grants for creating or developing one’s own business.
