Social Housing of the most vulnerable groups – Municipality of Thessaloniki

The pilot project which is funded by the Recovery and Resilience Fund aims to prevent and address housing exclusion of vulnerable groups of the population threatened by or experiencing homelessness and to create networks between property owners and local social services in order to develop a social housing policy for these groups.

Project interventions include:

  • The renovation and energy upgrading of 30 publicly owned flats in order to integrate them into a network of affordable rental housing
  • Establishment of a system of beneficiaries, as well as other conditions for inclusion in the programme (eligibility criteria, duration of inclusion in the programme, accompanying services)

The project is a partnership between the Municipality of Thessaloniki, the Ministry of Family and Social Cohesion and the Social Rental Agency of MDAT S.A.

The project is part of axis 3.4 Increasing access to effective and inclusive social policies of the Greece 2.0 National Recovery and Resilience Plan.
