Social workers, families with special needs, Roma and other vulnerable categories from Gostivar are waiting for the final answer: Will they get an apartment in the social housing building ?. The call for applications was closed a month ago, and according to the latest information that Gostivarpress.mk received from the Ministry of Transport and Communications, 196 complete applications have been submitted, their review is underway, followed by a preliminary distribution.
The social building is located on JNA Street, next to the Quay of Vardar. The apartments that will be awarded have an area of 33 to 44 square meters.
After the distribution, the apartments will remain the property of the state, and the families that will receive them will be only users.
After five years, the institutions will control and if the family is out of social risk, the apartment will be assigned to another vulnerable family. This is done in order to take care of those who really need it and to prevent attempts for manipulation, ie resale of the apartments.
The building was built about 3 years ago, and the 70 apartments are still empty.
