As the budget process continues in Congress, the Estonian American National Council (EANC) is tracking the status of funding related to Estonian and Baltic security and calls on Estonian Americans to contact Members of Congress to show support for the funding. 


Our main item of interest for fiscal year 2022 is the Baltic Security Initiative (BSI).

BSI is a new authorization introduced in August by House Baltic Caucus co-chairs Representative Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) and Representative Don Bacon (R-NE). 

In the second quarter of 2021, the Dwelling Price Index increased by 16.1 percent compared to the same quarter of 2020 and by 2.6 percent compared to the first quarter of this year, data from Statistics Estonia shows.

Egne Säinast, analyst at Statistics Estonia, said compared to the second quarter of 2020, the prices of apartments rose by 14.1 percent and the prices of houses by 21.6 percent.

"The big year-on-year growth is due to the low reference base at the beginning of the corona crisis," said Säinast.

At next month's local elections, 165,832 non-Estonians will be able to cast a ballot and over 25,000 of them are EU citizens. Additionally, 31 EU citizens are standing as candidates.

Data from the Ministry of the Interior shows 1,075,199 people are eligible to vote in the October elections.   

Of these, 909,367 are Estonian citizens and 165,832 are people who hold other citizenships.
