Applications are now open for the €400 Accommodation Recognition Payment for households hosting people claiming Temporary Protection after fleeing the conflict in Ukraine.
The payment will be paid on the second Tuesday of each month with the first payment being made on Tuesday August 9, including any arrears that are due.
The payment is a recognition of the generosity of people who have made accommodation available to victims of a humanitarian crisis, and it is linked to a minimum hosting commitment of six months.
The new scheme was welcomed by local TD and Minister of State, Frank Feighan who said: “Many people across the north west ‘stood up to the plate’ and invited people into their home, I am glad that Government is recognising this generosity.”
Information on the scheme is available at  and applications for payment may be made at
