Funding Call: FAST-CARE Integration of Third Country Nationals

Suzanne AllenBlog & News

​In June 2022, as part of its response to the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine, the European Commission adopted the FAST-CARE package. This builds on the Commission’s Cohesion’s Action for Refugees in Europe (CARE) package allowing Member States and regions to provide emergency support to people fleeing from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Funding is now available under a new Priority Axis that aims to address the migratory challenges resulting from the military aggression by the Russian Federation in Ukraine and to support the socio-economic integration of third country nationals. It will financially support the facilitation of the reception, welcoming and integration of people fleeing the war in Ukraine.

Through this Call the Managing Authority is seeking applications from Upper Tier Local Authorities or other types of delivery partnership arrangements based on retroactive Local Authority costs incurred in the reception, welcoming and integration of third country nationals, in England between 24 February 2022 to 31 August 2022, as a result of the military aggression by the Russian Federation.
