EU backs emergency support for local authorities in Ukraine

Ensuring emergency access to water supply, sanitation, energy, food, medical care and health goods is a critical challenge for thousands of local authorities across Ukraine. In order to help them, the IZOLYATSIA Foundation, with financial support from the European Union, has opened a response programme to help meet the immediate needs of the Ukrainian population caused by the war.

The following needs can be covered under the programme:

  • arrangement of temporary shelter for IDPs: sleeping places, equipment for cooking, washing, arrangement of water supply and sewage;
  • arrangement of centres with electricity for the civilian population;
  • food and water (including animal feed);
  • hygiene products;
  • medicines, health products;
  • services related to strengthening crisis response capacity, improving the security of war-affected populations and critical service providers.

The focus is on communities affected by the war, as well as host and transit communities:

  • Communities most affected by the war: Donetsk, Zhytomyr, Luhansk, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson, Chernihiv regions,
  • Transit communities (including, but not limited to): Vinnytsia, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhzhia regions,
  • Host communities (including, but not limited to): Volyn, Zakarpattia, Ivano-Frankivsk, Lviv, Chernivtsi regions.

Who can apply?

  • Local self-government bodies and legal entities formed by them;
  • Amalgamated territorial community, urban territorial community;
  • Civil–military administrations.

Community requests are accepted on a weekly basis.
