EC Grants Advance 2 Million Euros Payment in Wake of This Year's Disasters

At its Tuesday session in Strasbourg the European Parliament approved the extension of 1,983,600 aid to Bulgaria because of the floodings last summer (July-August). The funds are expected to be received in September.
The aid will help this country cope with the damages to public infrastructure, private homes, agriculture, environment and business. The motion was supported by 667 MEPs, 31 were against and 11 abstained.
The European Commission (EC) has decided to grant Bulgaria an advance payment from the EU Solidarity Fund because of the disasters in the period between January 30 and February 4, the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works said Tuesday.
Two applications have been submitted and approved to date: for the floodings in mid-June and end-July 2014, for which Bulgaria has received 10.5 million euro and 1.98 million euro respectively, the ministry recalls. On April 24, Bulgaria submitted its third application to the Solidarity Fund because of the disasters in January 30 - February 4, and on June 24 the EC adopted a decision for extension of the funds in advance.
