Families who house Ukrainian refugees could be paid 400 euro per 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 €400 payment aims to cover increased costs including utility bills.
Meanwhile Taoiseach Michael Martin says the Ukraine war could create a 'famine crisis'.
"This is a terrible war."
"It's clear that Putin has created an energy crisis as a result of the war."
"It's creating potentially a famine crisis with the attacks on grain and the fact that Ukraine's not in a position to export its grain, that will create difficulties down stream."
