Commission awards additional €7 million emergency assistance for migrants in Greece

On Friday, 22 December 2017, the European Commission awarded an additional €7 million in emergency assistance to Greece under the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund to provide an immediate response to urgent needs for shelter, catering, hygiene and cleaning services not only in the Aegean islands but also in accommodation camps in mainland Greece.

Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos said:  “We continue to show solidarity with Greece in managing the migration situation on the islands and the mainland. Housing, cleaning services and  food  are not a luxury. They are a must. The additional funding awarded today will help improve reception conditions in Greece.

The funding will enable the Greek authorities to continue improving accommodation centres as well as the  support of adequate provision of basic services. The €7 million awarded complements the EU emergency funding allocated to Greek authorities and international organisations operating in Greece since 2015 under the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) and the Internal Security Fund (ISF), now standing at €385 million. This comes on top of the €561 million EU contribution already allocated to Greece under the national programmes 2014-2020 for home affairs (€322.8 million for AMIF and €238 million for ISF).
