Housing poverty in Armenia
- 22,665 people served in FY18
- 61 volunteers hosted in FY18
- Projects: construction, renovation & market development
We have been active in Armenia since 2000 and as of July 1st 2015, we have supported 4,323 low-income families throughout the country. We implement various projects including home renovations and upgrades as well as energy efficiency upgrades of residential buildings.
Almost half of the population in Armenia lives in apartment buildings (around 19,000 buildings and 435,350 apartments). A significant part of the “housing stock” in Armenia is in deplorable condition and continues to deteriorate year after year. There are no adequate maintenance and management systems in place.
In certain regions, low income families still heat their houses with wood because they have no heating system with natural gas.
All homeowners pay mandatory fees that go to residential buildings’ maintenance funds, however these are far too low to cover repair costs. In addition, these buildings do not have proper energy insulation because old construction methods were not based on modern energy efficiency standards.
