In the first competition of the 2021 Presidential Grants Fund, experts supported 124 projects in the Far Eastern regions. About a quarter of the approved projects will be implemented in Yakutia.

According to TASS, in Yakutia, following the results of the first competition, there were the most approved projects among the Far Eastern regions. One of the projects - "Villages without fires" - will be aimed at creating volunteer fire brigades in ten villages. There are frequent fires in this area, but there are no state fire departments. Volunteers will receive training, equipment and extinguishing agents using the grant funds.

Several projects at once are aimed at reviving and preserving traditions. The villagers will be taught how to sew a national men's costume, a competition for masters of national dress will be held, a ritual round dance "Osuokhai" will be organized, in which about 500 men will take part.

It is also planned to open a children's camp in the nomadic Evenk community. Here children will be able to learn their native language, learn more about the traditions and culture of the Evenks, learn reindeer husbandry and other traditional crafts.

A mobile ethnographic museum will be created in Neryungri, several events will be held that will acquaint residents with national folklore and traditions.

Also among the winning projects was a project for schoolchildren from the Khabarovsk Territory. For 1,5 thousand students, a geological club "Lithosphere" will be created, where geological expeditions to the Anyui National Park will take place. A tourist project is also planned for Primorsky schoolchildren - children will learn the history and geography of their native land based on the expedition of Vladimir Arseniev.

In Kolyma, children from low-income families will be taught diving by social activists. After a seven-month course, children will be able to pass exams and receive a certificate. A free biathlon section for children and a qigong gymnastics club for the elderly will open in the Amur Region. A summer dance school for children with disabilities will be held in Chita.

Among the winning cultural projects, there is also a puppet theater for relieving anxiety in patients of medical and social institutions. And in the Jewish Autonomy they are planning to open online vocal lessons for schoolchildren from 10 to 17 years old.

In total, at the beginning of 2021, more than two thousand projects became winners in the presidential grants competition, of which 88% were not from Moscow.
