The Housing care programme for Homeland War victims is implemented on the basis of needs determined by the Ministry of Veterans' Affairs, which is responsible for housing care for Homeland War victims. The Housing care programme for Homeland War victims includes organised construction of apartments and family houses with special adaptations for Homeland War veterans with 100% disability, the purchase of completed apartments or apartments completed to a high degree at new locations, adaptation of apartments and access to apartments as well as family houses for veterans with 100% disability.
