The outbreak of a novel virus infection has a significant economic impact. Member States have implemented support measures for citizens or companies. Some of these support measures may entail State aid within the meaning of Article 107(1) TFEU.
DG Competition has set-up a dedicated mailbox and telephone number, to assist Member States with any queries they have or measures they would like to discuss on the State Aid Temporary Framework or on the Recovery and Resilience Facility State aid guiding templates:
e-mail address: COMP-COVID@ec.europa.eu
DG Competition has published State aid guiding templates to assist Member States in the design of their national plans under the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF):
