Social housing is considered an institution through which a community directly helps provide affordable housing to citizens in need. By virtue of the fact that it is implemented with the support from the State or its body, social housing should be considered part of the overall social policy, with special emphasis on regional and local specificities and development plans of administrative units.
Donors and international NGO support program that have been implemented in BiH for several years now, with active participation and financial support from the competent local institutions that promoted and introduced social housing through the implementation of various projects within these programmes. Considering the priority of solving housing issues, the projects were mostly focused on specific vulnerable categories such as war victims, displaced persons, returnees, and residents of collective accommodation. The projects were tailored to the potentials and specific situations in the communities.
