ERRIN Facility

The ERRIN Facility is a reserved budget of €2 million that can be allocated to activities addressing return-related challenges in a short timeframe. Members identified four priority areas for the funding: 1) Outreach and pre-departure counselling; 2) Gov2Gov cooperation; 3) Innovative approaches towards re-integration; 4) Integrated return management. Only public bodies of ERRIN Member States are eligible to apply. Funding is allocated by the Management Board after internal assessment.
