Hungary to Get €21M in Emergency Aid from EU

The European Commission is preparing €21.1 million (US $22.3 million) in emergency aid to Hungary for refugees fleeing Ukraine, writes Népszava.

The emergency aid will come from the EU’s home affairs fund, and a resolution stipulates that 30% of the funds sent to government agencies must be channeled to NGOs, as well as local and regional governments involved in the care of refugees in Ukraine.

The government will have to show the European Commission what it intends to spend the money on, and the Brussels-based body will check afterwards to determine whether the funds were actually spent as intended and in accordance with the rules, according to the news site. [HVG]
