People encouraged to ‘offer a home’ for Ukrainian Refugees

by | 14 Dec, 2022 | News

The local government sector is leading a new government appeal for offers of unoccupied properties to provide temporary homes for those fleeing war in Ukraine. More than 60,000 people have arrived to Ireland from Ukraine, and most are in need of safe and secure accommodation. This new call aims to make use of unoccupied houses, apartments, or holiday homes to provide much needed accommodation on a temporary basis.

Under the new programme, local authorities are appealing for offers of houses, apartments, or holiday homes for use as temporary accommodation for those arriving from Ukraine. A tax-free recognition payment of €800 per month is available for properties offered. Property owners can offer homes at or by contacting the local authority in which the property is located.

The local authority in which the property is located will be the point of contact for owners throughout the offer and assessment process. Local authorities will match suitable properties to Ukrainian beneficiaries and can support in agreeing licence agreement and other arrangements.
