Subject. As one of their goals, national projects are intended to create conditions for small and medium-sized entrepreneurship (SME) in regions. The State supports those businessmen who are engaged in social entrepreneurship or plan it to help them throughout the development phases. Although national projects are maintained and the SME development strategy is in lace, SME activity goes down across regions.
Objectives. I analyze the way national projects are implemented and their resources are used for the regional development of social entrepreneurship.
Methods. The study is based on methods of the regular overview of literature, text content analysis and case study.
Results. The article presents the overview and the content analysis of scientific papers and statistical data for the Primorsky Krai, and the case study of socially-oriented businesses in the above area within 2018–2020. I analyzed the substance and the significance of a national project, determined the role of such projects for business growth and reviewed governmental aid as part of national projects for the social entrepreneurship development in the region.
Conclusions. Having conducted the theoretical study of the substance and content of national projects, analyzed their implementation in the region and the use of their resources, such as possible benefits and preferential conditional for social businessmen, I determined how such projects influence the emergence of socially-oriented business in the Primorsky Krai. The findings can be used in further research into regional social entrepreneurship development programs, which help create the effective environment for business in the region.
