In the 2014-2020 programming period, the CF eligibility criterion regarding per capita of GNI continues to apply. The indicator is measured in PPS and on the basis of EU figures for 2008-2010 for the EU-27. In addition, the countries eligible for CF support have to have in place a programme leading to the fulfilment of the economic convergence criteria as set out in Article 126 TFEU. The detailed CF allocation method is laid down in Article 90, points 3 and 5 CPR and in Annex VII CPR.
In the current programming period, these requirements are being fulfilled by 15 countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Cyprus, which until 2016 benefited from phasing-out CF support (Article 90(3) CPR). Due to the decrease of GNI, Cyprus became fully eligible for CF support in 2017-2020.
