A grant is a discount given to a business or individual to use with any of the Yandex.Cloud services. The discount amount corresponds to the grant amount. The discount is applied to the total cost of services consumed.

The currency in which the cost of services is displayed depends on the agreement and the country of residence:

  • For residents of Russia, the cost is displayed in rubles (₽) and includes VAT.
  • For non-residents of Russia, the cost is displayed in US dollars ($) and doesn't include taxes or fees.

Initial grant

When creating your first billing account, you are provided with an initial grant. For more information about the size of the initial grant and conditions for its use, see the document Trial period.


Only one initial grant can be given to an individual or business.

Additional grants

Additional grants can be provided by the decision of a Yandex.Cloud manager or upon your request to the support service. You can view the amount of additional grants and their validity period in the management console.

How to use grants

The grant priority depends on its validity period: the earlier it expires, the earlier the grant is used.
