In May 2017, Grants totalling €1.8 million to help the integration of immigrants were announced today by Mr. David Stanton, T.D., Minister of State at the Department of Justice and Equality with responsibility for Equality, Immigration and Integration.
A total of 15 projects will be delivered over the next three years in a number of locations across the country by public bodies and NGOs who were successful following an open call for applications.
Examples of the integration projects selected for funding include:
A nationwide project to support English language acquisition.
An employment and integration project in Dublin for vulnerable and socially-excluded immigrants, which will increase the employability of members of the target group.
A Cork-based project providing practical support and advice to immigrants.
A nationwide anti-racism project involving children and young people.
Announcing the funding, the Minister said:
“Fourteen projects will be funded across the country to help support the integration of our immigrants. This complements the €4.5 million under the EU Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund and the €3.3 million under the ESF Employability of Migrants Measure, both of which I announced in January last, and the €0.5 million Communities Integration Fund which I initiated in February and the applications under which are at present being assessed.
