Following the RHP Donors’ Conference in Sarajevo in April 2012, the CEB, in coordination with the Donors, established the RHP Fund, which held contributions for the Regional Housing Programme.
The RHP Fund’s governance structure and the conditions applicable to its resources were defined in the General Conditions of the RHP Fund. The RHP Fund’s governance structure is presented here.
By end-2013, all nine Donors who had pledged funds to the RHP Fund during the Donors’ Conference had committed and paid contributions to the RHP Fund. They continued to show their sustained support to the Programme in the following years by further increasing their contributions.
Of the total EUR 247 million committed, EUR 193 million were committed by the European Union (represented by the European Commission, the “Commission”), i.e. 78%.
In total, the RHP Fund Donors approved EUR 237 million of grants in favour of the Partner Countries’ Country Housing Projects. Out of this total amount, EUR 134 million, or 57%, went to Serbia, an amount that was in line with the country’s share of the Programme.
The funds were disbursed throughout the Programme, in accordance with the Partner Countries’ needs.
At end-2023, out of the total amount approved of EUR 237 million, the Partner Countries had incurred costs totalling EUR 225 million.
