News / EU provides homes for displaced and socially vulnerable families in Kosovo
There are 34 families who have lived in the Padalište/Padallishte collective centre in Gračanica/Graçanicë municipality in Kosovo for more than 20 years. Now the EU-funded construction of two new apartment buildings has entered its second phase, and families are expected to move in September 2023.
In addition to the construction of the two new buildings in Suvi Do/Suhadoll village, the EU’s project providing housing to displaced and socially vulnerable families in Gračanica/Graçanicë worth €2.5 million has already completed the renovation of 22 apartments, and will therefore improve the lives of 56 families in total.
The project is being implemented in cooperation with Gračanica/Graçanicë Municipality and Kosovo’s Ministry for Communities and Return, which is contributing an additional €100,000 towards the construction works.
Since 2002, the EU in Kosovo has invested more than €77 million to support return and reintegration processes and improve the livelihoods of non-majority communities. More specifically, from 2016 to 2022, the EU invested €6 million in the construction of social housing to provide accommodation for displaced persons living in collective centres in Štrpce/Shtërpcë and Gračanica/Graçanicë municipalities.
