Citizens of Ukraine temporarily living in Poland and unable to pay for housing can ask for help from the Polish authorities. If you have already rented accommodation or are planning to do so, you can apply to participate in the program if you meet certain criteria.


Subsidies help to settle with the landlord, pay utility bills, and pay off administrative fees. You can apply for participation in the program if you rent or own real estate. Documentary proof of the lease or ownership is required.


Who can participate in the program?


Only insolvent tenants can participate in the program. The total income of an applicant living alone must not exceed PLN 2,265.01 per month. If the property is rented by a family, the average monthly income of one person must not be higher than PLN 1,698.76. The same rules apply to people who live together but are not relatives. Incomes for the last three months are taken into account.


The amount of payments cannot exceed PLN 1,500 and 70% of the total amount of expenses. The subsidy will be accrued for six months. The money will be deposited into the account of the landlord or tenant.


You can find a sample application here. It must be accompanied by:

    • A certificate on the amount of payment for housing;

    • Document confirming the right to use real estate;

    • Certificate of income of all residents of the house or apartment for three months.


Applications are accepted and considered in local self-government bodies. All issues related to subsidies are resolved by mayors and heads of communes.
