About five years ago, the government had started a program whereby it was providing three million drams free of charge to our young families who were building houses in rural communities. Artsakh President Arayik Haroutyunyan wrote this on his Facebook page.

“According to my pre-election promise, we have already made the following two important changes in the decision, which will come into force as of September 1.

  1. A) The three million drams being provided for the mentioned purpose has become five million drams.
  2. B) The specified age limit [for this program] has increased from 40 to 50.

I believe these changes will be a powerful impetus for the balanced development and housing of rural communities, improving the living conditions of many families. Therefore, I signed this government decision with great joy,” Haroutyunyan added.
