The European Commission continues to look for ways to assist Member States in the field of integration of third country nationals. Based on the lessons learnt, the toolkit aims to support national and regional funding authorities in implementing integration policies through the use of EU funds and, therefore, to reinforce synergies between those funds. This will help identify measures to promote the use of EU funds in the fields of employment, education, reception, housing and access to basic services.
In order to further assist national and regional authorities, the toolkit identifies areas where people with a migrant background are considered to face the most pressing and acute challenges. They are addressed through scenarios on employment, education, housing, reception and access to basic mainstream services
The Commission will continue to support Member States by providing a wide range of policy and funding instruments to strengthen the integration of people with a migrant background, reducing inequalities and ensuring equal treatment. We would like to encourage all stakeholders to use EU funds to their full potential.
