Starting today, all citizens whose homes have been slightly damaged as a result of russia's armed aggression and have not yet been repaired will have access to the eVidnovnennia service to receive state aid to restore their housing facilities. This includes, first of all, replacing windows or doors, repairing roofs, etc.
"The mechanism developed jointly by the Ministry of Digital Transformation, the USAID/UK aid project Transparency and Accountability in Public Administration and Services (TAPAS) and the World Bank is aimed at launching a large-scale reconstruction of housing infrastructure. According to the regional military administrations, almost 18,500 multi-storey residential buildings and more than 142,000 private estates have been either destroyed or damaged since February 24, 2022. Within the framework of eVidnovlennia (eRestoration), we will focus on reconstruction of residential buildings with minor damage. To ensure that this can be done as quickly as possible, the eVidnovlennia service has been digitised and simplified for citizens. One can apply for assistance in Diia in a few clicks, and within a month a special commission under the community should make a decision on the provision of such assistance. I urge local governments not to delay the establishment of such commissions and to connect to the Register of Damaged and Destroyed Property, and enter the relevant information as soon as possible. We are planning to launch a compensation mechanism for destroyed housing as envisaged by Law No. 2923. We expect that by the end of this year, thousands of Ukrainians will be able to purchase new housing," commented Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration and Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development.
Who is eligible to use the service?
All citizens of Ukraine whose housing was damaged as a result of the hostilities and needs to be restored. This applies to apartments, private houses and other residential premises, such as dormitory rooms.
Priority will be given to:
Citizens who have already repaired their homes are not currently eligible for state aid. We are already working on a compensation mechanism, including through the reparations mechanism. We urge you to keep receipts, photographs, testimonies from neighbours or media reports about your damaged homes in order to claim a portion of russia's reparations in the future.
The funds can be used to purchase construction materials: windows, doors, roofs, and to pay for construction work.
The compensation can be used within 1 year from the date of its accrual.
The relevant compensation procedure has been developed by the Ministry for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development in cooperation with the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine with the support of the USAID/UK aid TAPAS Project.
