Investors will be able to get far greater financial backing from the Monotowns Development Fund. As resolved by the Supervisory Board of the Fund, loan maturities will be extended from 8 to 15 years, the Fund’s maximum share in financing for a project will increase from 40 to 80% of the project value, while the Fund’s minimum share in financing for an investment project will decrease from 100 to 10 million roubles. The time required to examine documents submitted by project initiators will be reduced from 65 to 35 business days.

Any investment project worth 250 million roubles or less financed by the Fund will be eligible for an interest-free loan, provided that collateral is only bank guarantees and/or surety bonds issued by RSMB Corporation/SME Bank and/or guarantees issued by VEB.RF.

The Supervisory Board of the Fund approved several other decisions. For instance, changes were made to the co-financing procedure for expenses incurred by Russian regions and municipalities to carry out construction and/or rehabilitation projects for infrastructural facilities in single-industry towns. Applications for such co-financing can now be submitted to the Fund electronically.

The Monotowns Development Fund is a not-for-profit organisation founded by VEB in 2014. The Fund is a national development institution whose activities are focused on creating the necessary conditions for new jobs and investment in one-factory municipalities, along with improvements to the urban environment. The Memorandum on Financial Policies of VEB.RF specifies that the development of one-factory towns, including building their infrastructure and industrial facilities, is a high priority.
