    More than 57,000 Ukrainians have received funds to repair their homes or buy new ones to replace those destroyed by the hostilities thanks to the eVidnovlennia (eRecovery) programme. The total amount of funding disbursed so far is over UAH 11 billion.

    “eVidnovlennia is one of the most complex services in the history of the digital state. No other country has such services, so our experience is absolutely unique. The service is very simple for the user, but at the same time, dozens of processes are taking place on the backend: data is retrieved from the Register of Damaged and Destroyed Property and checked in other registers, commissions work on the ground, etc. We have managed to launch a convenient and accessible service for Ukrainians, which, thanks to digital tools, ensures maximum transparency of processes and minimises any corruption risks,” said Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister for Innovation, Education, Science and Technology Development and Minister of Digital Transformation.

    The programme was launched in May 2023 by providing financial assistance for repairs of up to UAH 200,000. Today, it is also possible to receive funds for the restoration of housing up to UAH 500,000 or a certificate for the purchase of a new one if it is impossible to rebuild.

    Thanks to eVidnovlennia:

    • 54,500 people received funds to rebuild damaged housing totalling over UAH 5.8 billion;
    • 2,800 Ukrainians purchased new homes with housing certificates received as compensation for destroyed housing.

    Most applications for assistance were received from Kharkiv, Kyiv, Donetsk, Mykolaiv, Kherson and Chernihiv regions.

    In addition to housing restoration, the programme supports local businesses, as eVidnovlennia funds can only be spent in hardware stores and with contractors registered through the Diia portal.

    eVidnovlennia shows how digital tools are becoming a driving force in Ukraine’s recovery.

    The service has been developed by the Ministry for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development jointly with the Ministry of Digital Transformation with the support of the USAID / UK aid Transparency and Accountability in Public Administration and Services (TAPAS) project and the World Bank.
