Farmers have been allocated more than 30 plots for free use, the press service of the regional Ministry of Agriculture and Food reports.

According to the deputy chairman of the government of the Moscow Region, who oversees the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, Georgy Filimonov, 34 additional plots have been allocated to farmers, which are in state or municipal ownership.
“Their total area was more than 700 hectares. These lands will now be available for free use within the framework of the program “10 hectares near Moscow,” Filimonov said.
He noted that within the framework of this program, 17 land plots for a total area of 662 hectares have already been allocated in 2022. Among the municipalities where you can get land on preferential terms, there are still Silver Ponds, Shatura, Lotoshino, as well as 23 municipalities in the far Moscow region: gorokruga Bogorodsky, Volokolamsk, Voskresensk, Dmitrovsky, Yegoryevsk, Zaraysk, Istra, Kashira, Klin, Kolomna, Lukhovitsy, Mozhaisk, Naro-Fominsky, Orekhovo-Zuevsky, Pavlovsky Posad, Ruzsky, Sergiev Posad, Serpukhov, Solnechnogorsk, Stupino, Taldomsky, Chekhov, Shakhovskaya.

You can choose a land plot for free use on the interactive map of the Geoportal of the Moscow region, and apply for land remotely using the regional portal of public services.

Those who wish to receive it need to start with authorization on the portal of state and municipal services of the Moscow region.
