Households who take in Ukrainian refugees will be given a €400 monthly payment under new plans.
The Cabinet sub-committee on Ukraine signed off on a recognition payment on Thursday, with the issue going to a full Cabinet meeting on Tuesday.
The payment will apply equally to all households, whether it is a house or an apartment.
Legislation will need to be passed to process the payment which could take a few months, according to one senior source.
Some 28,000 people have come from Ukraine to Ireland since visa requirements were lifted due to Russia's invasion.
Housing Minister Darragh O'Brien has previously said a cap on the amount of refugees Ireland will accept is "off the table".
"We have been very clear through the Taoiseach that Government has made a decision on behalf of the Irish people that those fleeing this terrible attack and war in Ukraine, vested upon them through no fault of their own by Putin and by Russia, will be given safe harbour and refuge here in Ireland", he told Newstalk last month.
The Minister said housing refugees was "always going to be a challenge", noting that it is impossible to estimate how many people will be arriving from one day to the next.
"There is no question that many of those who are arriving on our shores now are going to be here for a considerable length of time and we want to make sure they are looked after as best as possible," he said.
