Greece requests 4th disbursement of grants from the RRF; Commission confirms receipt

The fourth request for the disbursement to Greece of funds amounting to 1 billion euros from the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) for grants corresponding to the achievement of 20 milestones and targets, was submitted on Thursday to the European Commission by the Alternate Finance Minister Nikos Papathanasis.

It had been preceded in April by the corresponding fourth request for the disbursement of 2.3 billion euros from the RRF loan arm after the achievement, actually earlier than predicted, of the goal of signing contracts for RRF loan. In total, disbursements to Greece within the framework of the RRF, which are expected in the coming months, now amount to 3.3 billion euros.

At the same time, a request was submitted to the European Commission for targeted technical modifications of the “Greece 2.0” National Plan.

Later on Thursday, the European Commision confirmed it had received both the disbursement request and the modification of the plan.
