Addressing housing needs of vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees in the community

“Addressing housing needs of vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees in the community” is a 12-month project funded by the Julia Taft Refugee Fund/ US State Department Embassy in Nicosia. 

The aim of the project is to reduce the risk of homelessness for vulnerable asylum seekers and holders of International Protection by identifying proper accommodation and conducting outreach to relevant actors to expand available housing options.

The project aims to approach stakeholders such as local authorities, municipalities and communities, welfare services, estate agencies and private home owners in order to encourage new methods of facilitating the renting of proper accommodation for vulnerable refugees in Cyprus, including asylum seekers and holders of International Protection, who find difficulty in navigating through the housing system in Cyprus.
