U.S. Supports Regional Housing Program for Refugees: Construction of Apartments for Refugees in Berane Begins

On April 7, 2017, Pol/Econ Chief Leslie Freriksen attended a ceremony to mark the opening of the construction site for 94 apartments for refugee families from the Rudes settlement in Berane as part of the Regional Housing Project (RHP).  Following completion of the € 3.9 million project aimed at providing permanent housing solutions for refugees who have decided to stay in Montenegro, authorities will close the refugee collective camps Rudes 1 and Rudes 2 in Berane.  The U.S. has contributed $20 million to the Regional Housing Program to date.
