The Hungarian Treasury is transferring the first subsidies on Tuesday as part of the government's new home renovation support scheme, Minister for Families Katalin Novák said on Tuesday, according to a report by Hungarian news agency MTI.
The first 17 families will receive an average amount of HUF 1 million in subsidies, the minister said.
