The European Commission today announced a new financial agreement of €1.8 million to enhance direct support to city and town authorities that are members of the Mayors for Economic Growth (M4EG) Facility network in Ukraine and Moldova.
Seventy percent of the grant component will be available for Ukrainian local authorities, and 30 percent to local authorities in Moldova.
The additional funds, along with previously repurposed funds from the M4EG project will sponsor a Call for Local Demonstration Initiatives focusing on revitalising and supporting the recovery of local economies and communities impacted by the war.
Under this call, two types of projects will receive funding:
As of February 2022, the M4EG initiative in Ukraine has carried out several interventions to support cities, equipping IDP shelters in Lviv, supporting a crisis coordination centre in Melitopol, setting up a network of 34 United Nations Community Volunteers in 29 local authorities, and launching an online course on crisis management and the integration of internally displaced persons for local authorities.
