€275.5 million more for emergency assistance for asylum and migration in 2016
To finance the additional emergency funding, AMIF and ISF funds foreseen in the EU's budget for 2016, which had not yet been allocated, will be used. The increase of the emergency funding follows the conclusions of the European Council of 18-19 February 2016, calling for urgent action to address the humanitarian situation in Greece and along the Western Balkans, using all available EU and national means to alleviate it.
The original budget of €188.98 million for emergency assistance under AMIF and ISF for 2016 has now been reinforced with an additional €193.5 million for AMIF and € 82 million for ISF to a total of €464 million for 2016 to address the most urgent funding needs of Member States in the context of the refugee crisis.
