Wiltshire Council said it will put down a deposit and the first month's rent for those who find themselves needing new accommodation.
However, they have to show that the property they are moving into is affordable for them.
Councillor Ruth Hopkinson, who is hosting a refugee, is concerned this is not enough.
"The council have acted for the immediate future, but it is not a solution for the long-term problem for these people," she said.
The Homes for Ukraine scheme was set up by the government to help those fleeing Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and worked alongside the Ukraine Family Scheme - which allowed refugees to join relatives already living in the UK.
Launched in March, it has seen about 75,000 refugees arrive in the UK.
Sponsors agreed to provide accommodation in their own home for a minimum of six months but according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) one quarter of the original sponsors want their homes back.
