Organisation Homes for Ukraine 3VA

Location East Sussex

For Ukrainians living East Sussex with Homes for Ukraine and Family Scheme visas, the SCDA Move-On Grant is available to help you secure your first home, and we are here to help you apply.

This grant will help you move on and secure a home to rent, but also support you with extra costs and more. You will be eligible for:

  • Holding Fee; a one-off payment to a landlord or letting agent to reserve a property
  • Your 1st-month rent; most landlords ask for 1 month’s rent in advance before you sign the agreement and move in
  • Tenancy deposit: a tenancy deposit is normally 5 weeks rent
  • Guarantor agreement: some landlords and letting agents ask for a guarantor before they’ll offer you a tenancy

Once you have found a property you would like to rent, apply for the grant by filling this form: Move-On Grant application

For more information on this grant and application and the next steps, go to; Procedures.

Please keep in mind that you can access this SCDA grant only once

For any help with SCDA grants or for advice on housing and options when you move on from your host, contact us on
