The state and international organizations provide financial assistance to Ukrainians who have become internally displaced persons.

After filling out a certificate of IDP status, it is possible to apply for assistance. Since March 2022, the Ministry of Economy has introduced a monthly allowance for internally displaced persons

To receive it, Ukrainians must confirm the fact of internal displacement by registering as an IDP. This could be done online or offline:

  • by contacting the TsNAP, the social protection authority of the population or representatives of local authorities (in person);
  • by applying for IDP status through the " Diya" (online).

Monetary state monthly assistance for IDPs is:

  • UAH 2,000 for persons over 18;
  • UAH 3,000 for children and persons with disabilities.

What will change from August 1 for IDPs

There are no special changes for IDP payments from August 1, 2022. IDPs will continue to receive cash payments from the state.

If in March and April 2022 all registered IDPs received them, then since May the rules have changed.

The government has limited the categories of Ukrainians receiving cash assistance. These changes will continue to apply in August.

In August 2022, payments from the state will be received by:

  • citizens displaced from the territory where active hostilities are taking place;
  • IDPs whose housing was destroyed or damaged.

It should be noted that when Ukrainians with IDP status return home, they also stop receiving payments.

Also in In August, the list of communities from which IDPs receive payments continues to operate. In total, there are now eight regions and 300 communities on the list. Thus, all IDPs displaced from these communities are guaranteed to receive payments.

International assistance for IDPs

Nothing has changed in the rules for receiving benefits from international organizations. In August, IDPs will also be able to apply for international payments. And those who have already sent an application that they have agreed upon will continue to receive them.
