So far, 25 families iving in the municipalities of Zemun, Stara Pazova and Indjija, all close to the capital Belgrade have received housing assistance in the form of delivery of packages of building material, which will allow the families to finish the construction of their houses. The implementation will continue with 100 more packages that will be delivered, as well as through provision of 70 prefabricated houses.
The signed agreements, which amount to a total of just over EUR 8 million in grants, will provide financing for the construction of a home for 68 elderly refugees and IDPs in Pljevlja, and for the construction of two apartment buildings in Podgorica for 120 most vulnerable families currently living in Camp Konik I.
Family Tepsic is one of the 125 vulnerable families that were selected to receive packages of building material financed within the first RHP sub-project implemented in Serbia. On 2 October they were visited by RHP donors and partners and Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Ivica Dacic, who is also President of the Serbian National Steering Committee for RHP.
It has been three months since the first shovels hit the ground on the construction site of Korenica in Croatia. As of today, three floors of an apartment building for 29 vulnerable families have already been finished.
The meeting took place on 23 June at the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs in Zagreb. The Donors praised the Partner Countries for the progress achieved during the previous year. In the past 12 months, RHP has moved from preparation to its implementation phase.
The Donors approved the latest sub-project proposal submitted by Serbia, aiming at providing durable housing solutions in the places of local integration for 661 refugee families throughout Serbia. This fourth Serbian sub-project has a total cost of approximately EUR 12 million, of which around EUR 10.6 million will be financed by the RHP Fund.
Today, CEB made the first disbursement from the RHP Fund: a 1st tranche of EUR 315 000 was disbursed to Croatia for the construction of an apartment building in the town of Korenica.
