Housing assistance is provided to the low-income families (citizens) permanently residing in the town of Balkhash and surrounding villages, who are registered in this dwelling, who are the owners or tenants of the dwelling.

           
         The main criteria for determining the right of the family to receive housing assistance are the aggregate income of the family and the costs of consuming communal services (according to the tariff or meter readings).

          The amount of housing aid is defined as the difference between the amount of payment for consumption costs of public services, within the limits provided by compensatory measures, and the established share of the family's maximum allowable expenses for these purposes.
Assistance is appointed from the month of filing an application with all necessary documents for a period of one year, with quarterly disclosure of income and family composition.Housing assistance is calculated for each family individually, depending on the income of the family, the occupied area of ​​housing and actually consumed public utilities, while the actual expenses of the family are accounted for within social norms:

·        The social norm of the housing area for single citizens living in multi-room apartments is 30 sq.m. (for living in one-room apartments, the total useful area of ​​housing);

·        Electricity consumption per family at actual costs, but not more than 250 kW. in houses equipped with electric cookers;

·        The norms of consumption of public services (water supply, sewerage, electricity, heat supply, operational services, garbage disposal), regardless of the form of ownership, are established on the basis of tariffs approved by service providers or according to the meter;
