Abstract: The research features the impact of city-forming enterprises on the main spheres of functioning of Russian single-industry towns. The paper shows why a city-forming enterprise often becomes the leading actor in solving the social problems of the whole town, as well as its own employees and their families. This happens because this kind of social support strengthen the labor relations between the enterprises and their own employees, which resulted in "additional financing"of the territory by the city-forming enterprises in many regions. Agreements on social and economic cooperation between representatives of the regional or municipal power and business are a good example of the social functions adopted by city-forming enterprises. Many large enterprises of Kemerovo region have been involved in this practice for years.
