The funds amounting to CZK 547,716,720 will be used to finance sustainable operation of shelters, halfway houses, and an intervention center in the capital city.
Prague will receive funding for the project from the Operational Programme Employment Plus – Ensuring the Availability of Social Services, and co-finance a minor part of the cost from its own budget. The total eligible costs of the project amount to CZK 547,716,720 for the period from 1 January 2024 to 31 December 2027.
