As this policy is a special budget proposal, details need to be compiled by the Executive Yuan and then submitted to the Legislative Yuan. After the legislative procedures are completed, the budgeted funds can be utilized for the designated purposes, and it is hoped that relief funds can be applied retrospectively starting from July so that related industries and practitioners can receive subsidies as soon as possible.
