Construction of flats has a chance to accelerate thanks to government funding. From 1 to 31 March 2021, TBSs, housing cooperatives and other entities may apply for construction loans from Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego. There is a pool of over PLN 1.5 billion to be allocated.
Financial and legal support, the so-called “social housing”, is a new government idea to satisfy the hunger for housing in Poland after the failure of the “Mieszkanie Plus” program.
