Today, the Cabinet of Ministers amended the Procedure for forming housing funds for temporary residence, accounting, and provision of such housing to internally displaced persons. The amendment was approved by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 495 on April 29, 2022.

The Ministry of Reintegration developed the draft of the relevant document by the Law of Ukraine No. 3446-IX of November 8, 2023. The law concerns amendments to the Law of Ukraine on Ensuring the Rights and Freedoms of Internally Displaced Persons, specifically regarding the provision of temporary housing for such persons.

This resolution aims to provide extra protection to specific categories of IDPs to prevent their forced eviction from temporary housing during the period of martial law and for six months after it ends.

Therefore, vulnerable internally displaced persons will not be subject to the residency restriction outlined in paragraph eight of part 1 of Article 9 of the Law of Ukraine ‘On Ensuring the Rights and Freedoms of Internally Displaced Persons’.

These changes aim to improve the legal and social protection guarantees for internally displaced persons.
