New EMN inform published: Arrangements for accommodation and housing for beneficiaries of temporary protection


This inform is based on contributions provided by 24 Member States with information updated as of 1st September 2022 and is complementary to the Safe Home initiative announced in March 2022 by the European Commission to support Europeans voluntarily hosting those fleeing the war, notably by mobilising dedicated EU funds and instruments for initial housing solutions and for long-term accommodation. In July 2022, the Commission introduced the Safe Homes guidance, endorsed by the Solidarity Platform, advising EU countries how to provide safe and suitable accommodation for people fleeing the war in Ukraine. It outlines the key principles for supporting hosts, as well as matching and ensuring safe and suitable housing for those in need. The guidance also looks at sustainable housing solutions for the future, particularly the possible role of community sponsors in welcoming newcomers. Inform can be found HERE.
