Second round of first aid to agricultural holdings and livestock units for the areas affected by the extreme flooding phenomena of September 2023 in Thessaly and other areas, announced the Ministry of Climate Crisis and Civil Protection, namely the General Secretariat for the Rehabilitation of Natural Disasters and State Aid.

According to the Ministry’s information, during the second round, interested parties will have the opportunity through the first aid platform, arogi.gov.gr, to submit their (revised or new) request in case they judge that they have very serious or very serious damage to equipment, raw materials, stored products, damaged vehicles and land capital.

Specifically, in addition to the first aid they have received to date, the beneficiaries will be able to submit the relevant request for:

– Additional first aid of 5,000 euros in cases where they judge that they have suffered very serious damage to the items included in the state aid.

– Additional first aid of 10,000 euros in cases where they judge that they have suffered very serious damage to the items included in the state aid.

The second cycle of the first aid will start at the beginning of next week, when the platform of the first aid, arogi.gov.gr, will be opened, in a context of close cooperation with the Independent Public Revenue Authority, and the beneficiaries will submit their requests , for which a cross-checking process will follow with the authorities of the Region of Thessaly and the Region of Central Greece, whose committees and echelons implement the scheme of state aid.

It is noted that during the first cycle of first aid, 33.9 million euros have already been granted to 16,400 agricultural holdings and livestock units that applied for first aid through the arogi.gov.gr platform and were confirmed by the data of the damage declaration to ELGA, with payments being completed in the next period.

In the meantime, according to the Ministry, the implementation of the state aid framework for agricultural holdings and livestock units continues normally by the services and echelons of the Regions under the coordination and cooperation of the Ministry of Climate Crisis and Civil Protection, with the aim of helping state – amounting to 70% of the estimated damage – to reach those entitled to it as soon as possible.

According to the protothema, in this direction and with a permanent aim of speeding up the procedures, farmers and breeders can submit the relevant files to the authorities in the Region of Thessaly and in the Region of Central Greece until February 29, 2024, so that they can all the procedures for the payment of both the advance payment and the final grant in the context of the state aid should be initiated.

It is worth noting that, according to the data of the Region of Thessaly, and until last week, 4,400 files have been submitted by the beneficiary farmers and breeders to the authorities of the Region of Thessaly, out of a total of approximately 31,000 damage declarations submitted through ELGA in the Region of Thessaly.

This is a number of submitted files that correspond to only 14% of the relevant damage declarations in Thessaly, while approximately 20% of the submitted files were filed during the past week. Therefore, taking into account the limited number of submitted files, the second, enhanced, round of first aid is launched to further support farmers in the areas affected by the extreme flooding events of September 2023.
