In accordance with certain criteria, disabled people get additional points when they are inserted in the Priority List which relates to the purchase of a flat, built under the programme of social housing construction, as well as to the Priority List for renting a flat.

The City of Rijeka has brought in the Decision on the conditions and standards for buying flats under the programme of social housing construction.

Furthermore, the City has brought in the  Decision on renting flats. The flats owned by the City of Rijeka are leased through the  Priority List that relates to renting flats.
