EU funds for Kef 'quake?
« on: Wednesday, 27 August, 2014 @ 15:36:54 »
EU Commissioner for Regional Policy, Johannes Hahn on Wednesday announced an aid package worth nearly EUR47 million for regions in Italy, Greece, Slovenia and Croatia, hit by a series of natural disasters in late 2013 and early 2014.

EUR3.7m is earmarked for Greece to help cover the costs of an earthquake and several aftershocks in Kefalonia and the Ionian Islands in January-March 2014.

The fund, proposed by the European Commission, was signed by Commissioner Hahn on Wednesday.

The support, under the European Solidarity Fund, still needs to be approved by the European Parliament and the Council.
