Slovak families that that were affected by extensive floods in July and August are expected to receive financial assistance within two weeks after submitting their application, according to a proposal approved by the Slovak cabinet at its session on October 13, the TASR newswire wrote.
The measure also provides that the Government Office's website will feature a list of villages and the amount of aid that is authorised for each. In September, the cabinet agreed to compensate those affected by the floods and the total amount was set at €5.99 million.
Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic said at the time that the assistance should mainly be directed towards people living in the Upper Nitra and Turiec areas, in the Trenčín and Žilina Regions, respectively.
