The authorities of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug continue to develop the region’s social policy. One of the latest achievements was getting into the top ten most comfortable subjects of the Russian Federation for the employment of people with disabilities, writes “Yamal-Media”.
In this list, the region took the seventh line throughout Russia. According to statistics, in 2022, at least 50 residents of the north with disabilities were able to find a job in the YNAO.
“Among the regions of the Ural Federal District and the Arctic zone, the Autonomous Okrug ranks first,” emphasized Elena Ponomarenko, specialist of the YNAO Department of Employment.
Since 2020, a grant competition has been regularly held in Yamal among public organizations that help people with disabilities. Starting from 2022, eight individuals and legal entities have received subsidies in the amount of up to 1.5 million rubles.
