The facility for additional funds for activities related to housing “Housing Plus” aims to contribute to improving the living conditions of some vulnerable people, including Roma, and to increasing the impact of the Local Development Programme in terms of improving the living conditions and future prospects of adults and children at risk of poverty and social exclusion.
The facility is addressed to projects financed under the calls for proposals “Enhancing Roma Inclusion and Empowerment”, “Local Development” and “Poverty Reduction” which are still being implemented and which also have a housing component.
The activities related to housing supported through the “Housing Plus” facility are those provided in the 3 calls for projects launched under the Local Development Programme, calls based on which the projects considered eligible are financed, and will be analyzed in relation to the contribution to the objectives of the program and the project.

The activities/measures directly aimed at the main objective of the “Housing Plus” facility can be accompanied by services addressed to beneficiaries that contribute to improving the results of the housing component of the project (eg, social, psychological, educational assistance related to housing, etc.).
