The European Commission is proposing an overall package of almost €530 million in financial support under the EU Solidarity Fund (EUSF) as an additional financial contribution to the efforts to fight the coronavirus health emergency.
The aid package proposed includes €132.7 million in advance payments already received by Germany, Ireland, Greece, Spain, Croatia, Hungary and Portugal. The final aid amount proposed for Ireland is €43.76 million.
The financial contribution proposed by the Commission now has to be approved by the European Parliament and the Council. The financial aid can be disbursed to the applicant countries shortly after the adoption.
