Payment for housing
It comes as families who house Ukrainian refugees could be paid €400 a month.
The Finance and Social Protection Minister's have been asked to look into providing some form of allowance to encourage more people to open their homes to those fleeing the war.
The Irish Independent is reporting the payment aims to cover increased costs including utility bills.
Nearly 24,500 people have arrived since the war began and that could increase to 33,000 by the end of May.
Almost 13,000 are currently being housed in emergency accommodation.
24,000 people pledged accommodation through the Irish Red Cross but over half haven't materialised.
