UK secures £31m coronavirus funding from EU mobility package

The UK is to benefit from £31m in funding from the European Union to assist the UK’s coronavirus response.

Secured through the EU’s mobility package, the funding will support some of the costs associated with the transporting of equipment and items of personal protective equipment (PPE) to the UK from overseas.

The successful bid for the grant ensures the UK will continue to benefit from its own contributions to the EU under the Withdrawal Agreement.

The EU mobility package is part of the Emergency Support Instrument (ESI), which was activated in April 2020 and has an overall budget of €2.7bn.

Financial support is being provide to the UK and 18 EU members states as part of the complete mobility package – with a total funding allocated across Europe of €150m.

The UK’s successful bid equated to €34m of the total funding.
