The year 2020 is the final year for completing the building of a moderately prosperous society in all respects. The reporter learnedfrom Municipal Civil Affairs Bureau that Wuhu has focused on thebasic living requirements of people in need, strengthened social assistance and security, and effectively secured the bottom line of people’s livelihood security.
According to the report, starting from the second half of this year, urban and rural subsistence allowances in Nanling County havebeen raised to 710 yuan per month, while those in Wuwei City have been raised to 662 yuan per month. The subsistence allowances have been kept in line with the level of social and economic development, growing in step with the disposable income of urban and rural residents. Both the subsistence allowances and the compensation level are among the highest in the province.
At the same time, all counties (cities) and districts in Wuhu shall establish a system of temporary relief funds, which shall be examined and approved directly by towns and streets within the prescribed amount. In case of emergency, “first aid” can be implemented. Currently, Wanzhi District and Fanchang District have delegated the power of review and approval on urban and rural subsistence allowances to towns and streets, speeding up the process, reducing the time of handling affairs, and promoting the quality and efficiency of relief work.
