The ROMACT Guide on Social Housing Allocation Criteria for Romania is now available

The ROMACT guide on social housing allocation criteria is based on the continuous needs assessment in ROMACT municipalities and comes in support  to the Romanian local authorities to better understand the social housing allocation methodology and promote the prevention of discriminatory policies in access to housing.
 
It combines both legal and social approaches and exemplifies potential restrictive criteria as well as criteria that are accessible and already used by some municipalities.
 
If you are a local authorities representative / a municipality civil servant and you want to provide us with feedback on the ROMACT guide, please write at romact@coe-romact.org.
