National Integration Fund 2020 
Supporting Communities to Promote the Integration of Migrants and their Children
Closing Date: 22 September
The National Integration Fund 2020 is open for applications from both public and private bodies until September 22nd.
€749,600 per year over a maximum of three years will be made available for projects that help migrants integrate into Irish society.
The National Integration Fund 2020 is a key element of the Migrant Integration Strategy 2017-2020. The Strategy was developed to enable migrants, or persons of migrant origin, to participate on an equal basis with those of Irish heritage.
Its primary objective is to ensure that barriers to full participation in Irish society by migrants or their Irish-born children are identified and addressed.


Funding will be given for projects that:

  • increase mutual understanding between local communities and immigrants
  • combat racism and xenophobia
  • undertake research on interculturalism or integration
  • help immigrants improve their language skills so they can access employment or integrate into their local communities
  • promote the integration into Irish society of vulnerable or socially-excluded immigrants
  • introduce immigrants to the political system and encourage them to vote
  • provide training to public and private sector organisations on equality and integration
  • provide information and support for immigrants to help them access services
  • provide information and support for immigrants in regard to immigration and citizenship
  • promote integration in schools
  • promote integration in the youth sector
  • promote integration in the workplace
  • promote the involvement of immigrants in sport, volunteering and cultural activities
