More than 6,300 applications have been received for state-subsidised prenatal baby support loans since the credit scheme was launched on July 1, state secretary for family and youth affairs Katalin Novák told MTI. Decisions on 1,500 of those applications have already been taken, Novák said. The interest-free general-purpose loans up to 10 million forints (EUR 30.800) are available to families having children until the end of 2022. They are part of a package of family support measures being rolled out by the government this year to address the problem of depopulation. Novák said almost 9,000 large families have submitted applications for subsidies to buy cars since July 1. Families with three or more children are eligible for up to 2.5 million forints for the purchase of vehicles that seat at least seven passengers under the scheme.
