Brussels, 6 November 2015
The European Commission last night awarded €10.17 million in emergency funding to Slovenia to help the country to manage the exceptional migratory flows it is currently facing. The funding comes from the Internal Security Fund – Borders and Visa (ISF) and the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) which make available €4.918 million and €5.256 million respectively.
This money will finance measures, taken since 20 September 2015, to increase the police presence at the Croatian-Slovenian border which improve first reception capacities for new arrivals, boost the accommodation capacity in Slovenia by about 7,500 places, and cover the accommodation costs of police officers deployed from other Member States.
