The European Commission has adopted a proposal for a Regulation ’on the Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived’ (COM(2012) 617). The new Fund (FEAD) would support Member State schemes providing food to the most deprived people and clothing and other essential goods to homeless people and materially-deprived children. If established as the Commission intends, FEAD would provide €2.5 billion during 2014-2020, with the EU contributing 85% to the cost of national programmes.
