On December 7, the Ministry of Reintegration, the German bank KfW and the Ukrainian Social Investment Fund signed a grant agreement for 24,2 million euros
The Ministry of Reintegration's press service reports.
The funds will be used to create energy-efficient housing for internally displaced persons, both through the existing reconstruction and the new facilities creation. They will use modern energy-saving technologies. The project has already selected 8 facilities located in Dnipro, Lviv, Kharkiv, and Khmelnytskyi regions. In addition, the Ministry plans to implement a number of social programs to support internally displaced persons and develop the capacity of host communities. The Ministry of Reintegration hopes the grant will help to provide social housing for about 700 internally displaced persons.
"We highly appreciate the German government's assistance, which is significant today both in terms of size and focus. It is very important that one of these areas was identified as support for internally displaced persons who lost their homes or were forced to leave them as a result of Russian aggression. This is a manifestation of a true partnership that we will always remember," said Iryna Vereshchuk, head of the Ministry.
- The first of eight houses to provide accommodation for wounded internally displaced persons undergoing rehabilitation has been launched in Lviv.
