Call for Proposals ‘Building Inclusive European Societies: Decent Work and Adequate Housing for All’

!! Extension of the application deadline until 29 April 2022 !!

Everyone aspires to live and work decently. Without the prospect of being treated with dignity, equally and fairly, without feeling safe at work, without a place to call home, how can one participate economically, socially and politically? And how can our societies then be truly inclusive and genuinely thrive?

Through this Call for Proposals, EPIM will support civil society initiatives aimed to ensure decent work and adequate housing for all in the European Union, with a specific focus on people who have migrated to/within the EU regardless of their ethnic origin, socio-economic status, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, (dis)ability, and migration status.

EPIM wishes to support initiatives aimed to create or enhance opportunities and conditions for decent work and adequate housing for people who have migrated to or within the European Union, by focusing on multi-stakeholder coordination, collaboration and/or dialogue between concerned parties. Grants awarded under this call for proposals can support the testing, implementation and/or replication of these coordination efforts. These efforts can be action-driven or purposefully aim to build structural and sustainable trust relationships between the actors involved.

Eligible civil society organisations are invited to submit a one-page concept note for a maximum budget of 120,000 EUR and a minimum duration of 12 months, before 29 April 2022, 23.59hrs (CET) (new deadline)


Concept notes can be submitted online at All applications will be reviewed after 29 April 2022. EPIM will interview or visit shortlisted applicants. Following this process, only pre-selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application.
