Program for jobless accepting applications

The submission of applications for the new eight-month community service program for 25,000 unemployed people has started, government spokesperson Yiannis Oikonomou said on Friday in a Twitter post.

“The program also draws funds from ESPA,” Economou pointed out, referring to the European Union-subsidized National Strategic Reference Framework, and concluded, “With a plan, we are strengthening employment with an emphasis on vulnerable groups.”
