The Department of Justice and Equality has announced that applications are now invited for funding under the Communities Integration Fund.
The Communities Integration Fund will fund actions by community organisations to promote integration in their local communities. The intention is to provide funding for communities across Ireland to play a greater role in promoting integration by providing practical support to facilitate social inclusion among the migrant population.
Grants/funding may be provided up to a maximum of €5000 depending on the size and nature of the project.
Activities may include for example
-activities aimed at introducing newly arrived migrants to the community
-measures to encourage migrant participation in local civil and cultural activities
-measures to encourage involvement in local sports clubs, theatre groups, youth groups, afterschool clubs, dancing troupes, choirs, parent and toddler groups
-measures to link migrant with opportunities in the community
