Vice Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk chaired a weekly meeting of the Coordination Headquarters for Ensuring the Rights and Freedoms of Internally Displaced Persons.

The Shelter project paid out UAH 70 million in January 2024. This went to 73,600 homeowners who let people in need stay with them for free.

As part of the Shelter project, the total amount of UAH 70 million was allocated for compensation in January 2024. These funds were distributed to over 73,600 homeowners who provided accommodation to internally displaced persons at no cost.

By an agreement signed with the Ministry of Reintegration, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has funded compensation payments since January of this year.

Furthermore, the Ministry of Reintegration has already transferred the data to UNHCR for the relevant payments for February, amounting to UAH 76 million. These payments will be made to 71,000 individuals who have provided accommodation to IDPs free of charge.
