This project aims to provide housing solutions for about 7,200 internally displaced persons (IDPs) following the 1990s wars, and thereby close 120 wartime collective accommodation centers. About one-third of the targeted beneficiaries suffer from various disabilities and are chronically ill, while the remaining two-thirds are considered socially vulnerable due to age, employment, marital and/or economic status.
As of December 2017, construction and/or tendering activities commenced in 36 municipalities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, with 129 apartments close to finishing and the first 100 beneficiaries due to move in in the first half of 2018. It is expected that a further 2, 100 housing units (about 80%) will have been completed by 2020.
The project benefited from a € 1.1 million WBIF grant, secured through Bilateral Donors' contributions. The grant helped define the institutional and regulatory frameworks required at the level of each municipality as well as manage the implementation and monitoring of the project so that construction could start and continue as due.
