Do you need help?

The public collection Helping Pilsen was created because many people in Pilsen have housing problems and are in housing need. Housing need means that a person has unstable, poor quality housing, lives in an overcrowded apartment or house, or housing is too expensive for them. It is also difficult to move because it is very expensive. In many cases, the only thing needed to solve housing problems is money. Even though one may try their best, it may not be enough sometimes. For these people in particular, money from donors can help start a better housing situation.

Who can apply for a donation from the Helping Pilsen public collection?

Anyone who finds themselves in a problematic living situation related to housing and does not have enough money to solve the situation on their own, i.e.:
  1. people who have a residence, doctor, family, school or job in Pilsen and need to live in Pilsen, or already live in Pilsen but are not comfortable with their housing situation there
  2. refugees fleeing from the war in Ukraine who decided to live and work in Pilsen long term due to the war conflict
  3. the application can also be submitted by non-profit organisations and entrepreneurs who help people with housing, including those who plan to help.

It is possible to apply for up to CZK 100 000.
