A contract for the legalization of housing of Roma people is signed. Open Society Foundation, civil organization National Roma Centrum from Kumanovo and the association for humanitarian housing Habitat Macedonia signed a contract on January the 18th. The project should provide financial, administrative and technical support in legalization of the homes of Roma people and it will last from 2012 till 2015. The total budget for the project amounts on 905.208 american dollars. NRC’s president Ashmet Elezovski showed aspirations to inform Roma people about the legalization of their homes through the project, and then to fully help them in the process of legalization. For that purpose the National Roma Centrum has already opened a Resource Center in Kumanovo where all interested Roma people will gain technical legal assistance.
Housing is one of the four important pillars of the Decade of Roma Inclusion 2005-2015.
