About the FEAD
the Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived (FEAD) addresses the worst forms of poverty in the EU, such as food deprivation, child poverty and homelessness. A total amount of €3.8 billion is available from the FEAD fund. The EU provides up to 85% in matching funds to complement resources allocated by the Member States, bringing the total value of the fund to around €4.5 billion. Member States implement a food and/or basic material assistance operational programme (OP I), and/or a social inclusion operational programme (OP II). Food and/or basic material assistance must be complemented by accompanying measures, for example a referral to social services.
