EC provides support Croatia's recovery from earthquakes
The European Commission said it has provided EUR 41 million to support Croatia's recovery from recent heavy earthquakes, according to a report by SeeNews.
The funding will be provided from the European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF) and is part of a EUR 119 million support which the Commission will distribute to France, Greece and Croatia for the recent natural disasters, the Commission said in a statement.
Devastating series of earthquakes hit the Sisak-Moslavina County and parts of the Karlovac and Zagreb counties in Croatia in December and January. This assistance from the EU Solidarity fund to Croatia comes on top of an EU allocation of EUR 111 million from the European Regional and Development Fund provided in early June 2021 for the reconstruction and construction of housing units for people that are unable to find housing because of social, economic or health reasons.
In March, the Croatian government said it is in the process of securing HRK 28.5 billion (EUR 3.8 billion) from the EU and international financial institutions to deal with the effects of the earthquakes. It estimated the value of the total damage caused by the tremors at HRK 128 billion.
