An unissued order of the Ministry of Finance under a regulation under the Family Child Benefit Act makes it impossible to implement a text from 2009, according to which families whose children cannot be placed in municipal kindergartens are entitled to a monthly allowance of 100 BGN
In this regard, the ombudsman Konstantin Penchev sent a recommendation to the Minister of Finance to fulfill his obligations, writes Actualno.com.
"Unfortunately, although the provision has been in force since 01.04.2009/XNUMX/XNUMX, such assistance is still not being paid. One of the reasons for this is that the regulation provided for in the law on the procedure for receiving and spending the benefits has not yet been issued by the Minister of Finance. explained Penchev.
However, the arrival of new complaints to the institution of the ombudsman shows that, despite the efforts made, the problem of the shortage of places in the budget-subsidized childcare facilities has not been overcome.
In response to the question posed by the National Ombudsman Konstantin Penchev regarding the implementation of Art. 10b of the Law on family allowances for children, the Ministry of Finance states that there are provisions in this law that were applicable for 2009, and the following years, due to the budget deficit and the economic crisis around the world, the Ministry of Finance could not allocate money.
