EC grants EUR 234 mln to Romania to support disadvantaged groups
The European Commission said on Thursday it is granting EUR 234 million to Romania to support disadvantaged groups under the REACT-EU mechanism.
The funds will be invested to provide classes to 168,000 disadvantaged students to make up for lost school hours during the pandemic, the Commission said in a press release.
In addition, the new funds will support new jobs by encouraging the hiring of people who lost their jobs during the pandemic, and by supporting 295 new social enterprises for people belonging to vulnerable groups.
The funding will also support premiums for 97,000 pandemic frontline health professionals.
