The EMN inform provides information on arrangements for accommodation and housing for beneficiaries of temporary protection from Ukraine in the EU Member States.
Most Member States use a combination of different forms of accommodation to host people fleeing Ukraine namely reception centres, hotels/hostels, used mostly for emergency situations, and private homes. Private households have also played a very important role in responding to the need to accommodate displaced people, especially because the housing capacity of many Member States is limited
Article 13(1) of the TPD stipulates that, if necessary, persons enjoying temporary protection should receive the means to obtain housing. Duration and amount of this financial support vary from one Member State to another, but in general, it is based on the number of persons accommodated and entails lower rates for children. The financial allowance is given either directly to the beneficiaries of temporary protection in case they do not live in reception centres, to local and municipal institutions, or to private households hosting beneficiaries. Funding the latter acts as an incentive to support and recognise the effort and contribution of private individuals and is an important factor in encouraging private households to provide accommodation to beneficiaries of temporary protection.
