German Government To Allocate €1 Billion More To Regions For Refugees Support
Following deliberations on refugee concerns between the federal government and the states, the German government decided to grant an additional €1 billion to the federal states for refugees this year.
At a special conference on Wednesday, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz met with the leaders of the federal and state governments to talk about the provision for refugees. The discussion went on for several hours.
The debate was productive, as Scholz highlighted at a press conference that followed the deliberations. There were several agreements made.
The agreement, which was posted on the German government portal, stated that « the federal government will increase the lump sum payment for refugees to the states in 2023 in order to support the states in providing additional benefits to their municipalities and in financing the digitalization of alien authorities. »
