Social housing and beyond: Operational toolkit on the use of EU funds for investments in social housing and associated services

This toolkit provides an overview of the types of funding available at the EU level to promote social and affordable housing and accompanying services in the 2021–2027 programming period. The overall goal is to indicate the role that EU funds can play in building capacities, implementing reforms and developing suitable ecosystems, in order to support effective investments from a social inclusion perspective. The 20 case studies included in the toolkit aim to showcase in concrete terms the implementation of a personcentred and place-based approach to the provision both of housing and of associated services. The Annex illustrates how the funding opportunities are used in the regional, interregional and national programmes established through the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+), the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the national plans adopted under the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF).
