European Union Solidarity Fund Annual report 2004
The European Union Solidarity Fund entered into force on 15 November 20021. Article 12 of the Regulation provides that a report on the activity of the Fund in the previous year be presented to the European Parliament and to the Council. This, the second report, presents the activities of the Fund in 2004 covering four areas: the completion of the processing of a number of pending applications received in 2003, the treatment of new applications received in the course of 2004, monitoring of the ongoing implementation of grants, and the assessment of the implementation reports on the first grants made in 2002 with a view to preparing these for closure. In addition, the report covers the preparatory work on a proposal of the Commission for a new Regulation on the Solidarity Fund for the period after the expiry of the current Financial Perspective in 2006.
