The European Union will allocate €19.5 million to build social housing in Lviv to accommodate internally displaced persons with special needs from all over Ukraine who have suffered from the war and need long-term rehabilitation. The funding will be disbursed as part of the EU-funded UNBROKEN programme.
The construction of two eight-storey buildings next to the social rehabilitation centre is planned to be completed by the beginning of winter 2023.
The city will allocate a plot for social housing, connect all utilities, and arrange landscaping and a bomb shelter.
“The architects are expected to offer a high-quality project to be implemented promptly, since this is an emergency programme that must be implemented as quickly as possible,” said Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyi.
“The EU will provide significant support to build housing for internally displaced persons fleeing the war-affected regions. Together, we will build a new layer of the UNBROKEN programme in Lviv to support rehabilitation of the victims of the Russian aggression,” said Katarína Mathernová, Deputy Director General for Neighborhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations and Head of the Support Group for Ukraine.
