Commission disburses the third payment of €700 million to Croatia under the Recovery and Resilience Facility

On 30 November, the Commission paid to Croatia the third payment for €700 million of non-repayable financial support (excluding pre-financing) under the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF). Payments made by Croatia under the RRF shall be performance-based and depend on the implementation by Croatia of the investments and reforms described in its recovery and resilience plan.

On 24 July 2023, Croatia submitted to the Commission the third request for payment of €700m under the RRF covering 32 milestones and 13 targets. These cover several reforms in the areas of health care, science and higher education, research and innovation, labour market, waste management and renewable energy sources, as well as investments in energy renovation of buildings, green and digital transition of tourism and reducing the administrative burden for businesses. 

On 25 October, the Commission adopted a positive preliminary assessment of Croatia’s request for payment. The favorable opinion of the Economic and Financial Committee of the Council on the payment request paved the way for the Commission to adopt a final decision on the disbursement of the funds.  

The overall recovery and resilience plan of Croatia will be financed by €5.5 billion in the form of grants. The amounts of payments made to member states are published on the Recovery and Resilience Scoreboard, which shows the progress made in the implementation of the RRF as a whole and of the individual recovery and resilience plans. More information on the RRF payment claim process can be found in this Q&A document. More information on the Croatian Recovery and Resilience Plan can be found here.
