CNA - CYPRUS/Nicosia 14/09/2019 10:48


The Ministry of Labour announced on Friday that the Republic of Cyprus will provide financial aid to young Greek Cypriot couples and members of the Maronite community up to the age of 45, who consider moving to their Turkish-occupied villages, in a bid to revitalize and develop these areas.
 
Beneficiaries need to either be married, with a religious or civil ceremony, or have entered a cohabitation agreement, and intend to reside permanently as with their family in their Turkish-occupied village for most days of the week, under the precondition that they are not Guaranteed minimum income recipients or receive other public aid.
 
According to needs, beneficiaries will receive up to €15,000 for families with children up to 18 years old, and €10,000 for families without children.
