REBIRTH OF THE ROMANIAN VILLAGE - Programme Description
The programme addresses the needs of education professionals, doctors, nurses and police officers who work in rural areas. The beneficiaries are professionals who do not own, either individually or jointly, with their spouses, a house in the commune where they work, regardless of the way in which they acquired it, with the exception of shares in dwellings they have inherited.
The Agency shall build maximum 10 houses in each Romanian commune and shall hand them over to the public authorities of the territorial-administrative unit where the dwellings are located. A maximum number of 15 houses may be built in communes where more applications for such houses have been submitted.
These houses are employee dwellings and cannot be sold. They shall be managed by the local authorities which shall also provide the necessary infrastructure (utility networks).
The construction of the housing units shall be funded from the state budget, without exceeding the amounts assigned for this purpose, in accordance with the state budget law.
The maximum two-storey houses (ground floor/ground floor + attic) shall have maximum gross areas of 100 square metres for two-room houses and 120 square metres for the three-room ones.
- The people interested in living in such housing units shall submit applications for such houses to the local authorities. If there are more applications than the available houses, the local councils shall establish the order in which the applicants shall be assigned the housing units and the young education professionals, doctors, nurses and police officers under the age of 35 shall be given priority.
- These professionals may live in these rental housing units for as long as they are employed and, as tenants, they are under an obligation to vacate the dwelling within 30 days after the termination date of the contract of employment in that commune.
- The amount of rent charged by the local authorities shall not exceed the housing unit-related management expenses incurred.
