MEPs set to request more funds for cities and regions dealing with migration 

Local and regional authorities tend to be tasked with receiving and integrating migrants and refugees, but they often lack the necessary support and funding.

Pointing to the humanitarian crisis taking place in the Mediterranean, MEPs are likely to call on the EU and the member states to increase direct funding for cities and regions, by granting them direct access to budget lines under the Multiannual Financial Framework.

Procedure: Council and Commission statements, without resolution
