The European Commission has announced that the first call for proposals under the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (2014 -20) is now open for applications.

The objective of the Fund is to contribute to an effective management of migration flows in the Union.

A total of €3 million is available under this call for transnational projects that identify, develop and promote good practices and the exchange of information.

• Project applications under this call for proposals will need to address the following priorities:

• Identification of special needs of vulnerable asylum seekers related to the asylum procedures and the reception conditions;

• Provision of legal and procedural information free of charge;

• Integration of persons benefiting from international protection.

The call is open to not-for profit and international organisations. This call will fund only transnational projects designed, submitted and implemented by a partnership of at least three eligible distinct organisations established in at least three EU Member States. Grants of between €300,000 and €750,000 are available for up to 90% of total eligible costs.
