International Protection Integration Fund 2024 Opens for Applications
The Minister of State for Integration, Joe O’Brien, today approved €1,500,000 in funding under the International Protection Integration Fund 2024.
Now in its third year, the International Protection Integration Fund celebrates rich cultural diversity and enables community based organisations across Ireland to play a greater role in supporting the integration of International Protection Applicants. Successful Scheme A organisations stand to receive grant funding of €30,000 – €100,000 to support large scale integration projects. Successful Scheme B organisations stand to receive grant funding of €2,000 – €10,000 to support smaller integration initiatives.
Welcoming the announcement, Minister of State O’Brien said:
‘The less reported stories these days relate to the literally hundreds of communities over the last two years that have welcomed International Protection Applicants to their locality. I was glad that last year we were able to support such efforts with this fund and I’m eager to get that support out again to communities this year as soon as possible’.
