Today, the EU launched a new 209 million euro flagship humanitarian programme for the integration and accommodation of refugees in Greece (ESTIA).

This marks a change from previous humanitarian projects which mainly provided support for accommodation in camps and the provision of direct supplies (for instance with the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF)). Indeed, this new EU programme will help refugees and their families rent urban accommodation and will provide them with cash assistance in order to empower them to meet basic needs such as food, medicine and public transportation.
