Ukrainians fleeing the fighting receive additional financial aid from the French Family Assistance Fund (CAF). Money can be given to those who have previously provided temporary protection.
Compensation for housing rentLink kopieren
The fund returns part of the funds spent on rent to Ukrainian families renting housing in France. The subsidy can be received during the entire period of residence. The money will be transferred directly to the home owner, and you will have to pay the difference yourself.
The amount of assistance depends on certain conditions:
• the cost of rent
• area and type of housing
• the number and age of people living there
• marital status
• wages of the tenant
On the CAF website, you can get an approximation of the subsidy amount. Information regarding your financial situation and rented housing will be requested of you.
The agency will respond with information on whether and how much financial support is available. If so, you must register for an account and submit a help request online.
The following documents are required in order to complete a profile:
