On 28 July 2022, Cyprus submitted to the Commission an initial request for €85 million, based on the achievement of the 14 milestones set in the Council Implementing Decision. On October 25, 2022, the Commission approved a positive preliminary assessment of this application. The favorable opinion of the Economic and Financial Committee paved the way for the adoption by the Commission of a final decision on the disbursement of funds.

Overall, the Cyprus Recovery and Resilience Plan will be funded with €1.1 billion (€916 million in grants and €200 million in loans). Payments under the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) are performance-based and conditional on Cyprus implementing the investments and reforms outlined in its Recovery and Resilience Plan.
