2013-2014 Flexible funds projects
In the timeframe of July 2013 to June 2014, EPIM offered the Flexible Funds Facility. It was available to current and former grantee organisations to apply for small amounts of funding in order to be able to respond to emerging and unexpected opportunities and challenges that fall within EPIM’s programme objectives. Four small grants were awarded.
2012-2015 EPIM III projects
EPIM 2012-2015 was the third phase of the European Programme for Integration and Migration, whereby 10 grants amounting to 2,200,000 EUR were awarded to Pan-European NGO-led projects which fell into the following focus areas:
Focus area (1) – Asylum seekers
- Ensure that European Asylum Policy improves standards and ensures due process and fair determination procedures for all those seeking protection.
- Ensure that immigrant detention is used only as a tool of last resort.
Focus area (2) – Undocumented Migrants
- Protect those undocumented migrants who are at risk of destitution and exploitation, including through access to justice and essential services that guarantee human dignity.
Focus area (3) – Equality, integration and social Inclusion of vulnerable migrants
- Promote the social inclusion of those migrants at greatest risk of marginalisation.
- Promote their economic empowerment, civic participation and social responsibility – both through targeted programmes and through their inclusion in mainstream social policies.
The following projects have been supported:
2008-2011 EPIM II projects
