The 50/20 program

Information for those who host Ukrainian citizens

The 50/20 program is a framework of the state program through which people receiving citizens who arrived from the zone of armed conflict in Ukraine receive monthly cash payments from the budget:

  • housing – 50 lei per person per day;
  • meals – 20 lei per person per day.

In order to receive this incentive, you have to register at Direcția de Asistență Socială and submit your file in the first 3 working days of the month, for the people you hosted in the previous month.

The documents you need to submit:

Copy of the owner's ID

Copy of the documents proving the right to use the house

Bank statement (for those who request bank transfer)

The documents above are submitted just by one person for the same house. 

In Iași the documents can be submitted only physically at the Directorate of Social Assistance. The schedule for every working day is 08:00 am – 16:00 pm.

The address of the Directorate of Social Assistance (Direcția de Asistență Socială) is str. Mitropolit Varlaam 54, Iași 700259.

For more information regarding the process please call +40 232 206 344 or +40 770 882 719 (Romanian only) or visit the website of the Directorate of Social Assistance Iași.

Any change occurred while you host refugees (e.g. the refugee needs to go back in Ukraine for a week) needs to be communicated to the Directorate of Social Assistance as soon as possible, ideally on the day the change occurred. These changes can be communicated via email, on or via phone, +40 770 882 719.

If you send the modification via email, please make sure to add:

  • the hosting address
  • number of people hosted and the hosting starting date
  • your phone number and one of the refugee’s phone number (used to announce when a verification team will come to check the current situation)
  • the refugee’s passport copy containing the Romanian entry visa
