The government on Monday finalized a plan for seeking increase in the budget for the refugees in its fourth supplementary budget proposal.
 
The proposal will be placed before the parliament on Thursday seeking increase of euro 94 million to manage the costs for the increased number of refugees in the country during the recent period.
 
The proposal is based on the assessment that Finland will receive 30000 to 35000 refugees this year.
 
The housing allowance in the proposal has been increased by euro 80 million, as the number of long-term unemployment is on the rise and reform of the housing allowance system involves additional costs.
 
In addition, the proposal allots more money to the Ministry of Defence and Customs. 
 
The proposal also allocates funds to repair damage to crops this year, as well as to the Finnish Meteorological Institute and social and health care reforms.
