FEAD country fiche - Austria (2018 version available)


Austria provides basic material assistance through its operational programme. The FEAD operational programme in Austria aims to support children in low-income and disadvantaged households.

In Austria children and young people are more likely than other groups to be affected by poverty, with more than 10% of those aged below 18 affected by material deprivation.

The operational programme supports children directly, particularly with assistance for education. It provides children in low-income and low-asset households with back-to-school packs to reduce the financial burden that comes with the start of a new school year. The back-to-school packs, which include different options based on the children’s age and school year, also aim to boost children’s motivation at school and to put a stop to stigmatisation.
