The Cabinet of Ministers has expanded the list of construction stores and companies that can join the eVidnovlennia program. Owners of damaged or destroyed property will be able to purchase building materials or use services from companies participating in the program.
Both large businesses and small individual entrepreneurs in the market can become participants. This is an opportunity for companies to attract new customers, as Ukrainians can use the funds received under the eVidnovlennia program to buy construction materials or order repair services only from program participants. So far, 1,106 companies have joined the program, of which 178 are legal entities and 928 are individual entrepreneurs.
From now on, companies operating in the following categories and MCCs (Merchant Category Code) can join eVidnovlennia:
1711 - general contractors for ventilation, heating and plumbing;
1731 - electrical contractors;
1740 - insulation, mosaics, plastering, masonry, tiling;
1750 - carpentry contractors;
1761 - roofing, external wall cladding, sheet metal processing;
1771 - contractors of concrete works;
5065 - electrical parts and equipment;
5074 - equipment for plumbing and heating systems;
5198 - paint and varnish products and related products;
5200 - household goods;
5713 - floor coverings;
8911 - architectural, engineering and geodetic services.
Previously, only three categories and MCCs were eligible to participate in the eVidnovlennia program:
1520 - General contractors of residential and commercial construction;
5211 - Shops with building materials and lumber;
5231 - Glass, paint and wallpaper stores.
It is worth noting that since the launch of the eVidnovlennia program, Ukrainians have already submitted almost 48,000 applications for financial assistance for damaged or destroyed property. Of these, almost 14,000 applicants have received payments totalling over UAH 1.1 billion.
The service was developed by the Ministry for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development jointly with the Ministry of Digital Transformation with the support of the USAID/UK aid Transparency and Accountability in Public Administration and Services (TAPAS) project.
