EU funds for migrant integration
European institutions, international organisations and private foundations regularly provide funding opportunities in different areas of migrant integration and for various target groups. Funds are made available through grants, public tenders or calls for proposals. Eligibility criteria vary but civil society organisations, service providers, research centres and public administrations are often included among potential beneficiaries.
DG Home's Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund and Europe for Citizens are mainstream financing schemes that promote the successful integration of non-EU migrants and Europe's diversity, in general. However, most EU funding opportunities are made available through programmes focusing on specific issues. For example, the Justice Programme and the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme offer financial support for projects on access to justice and non-discrimination; Creative Europe and Erasmus+ target activities related to culture, sport, education and youth; the European Social Fund, the Regional Development Fund and the Employment and Social Innovation Programme finance a fairer EU job market for all and the fight against social exclusion; and the Health Programme is committed to support best practices in the care provision for vulnerable foreigners.
