Programme summary

Programme Concerns

A potential pre-defined project on the establishment of a ''Task Force Unit for Inclusion and Empowerment of Roma'', within the Ministry of Labour, Social Security and Social Solidarity, shall be considered. This project will aim to assist the Roma community to participate actively in the planning, monitoring and implementation of policies that affect them.

The programme shall contribute to the development of a strategy to address the most acute housing challenges of the Roma communities in Greece, including through social housing measures. A pre-defined project for this purpose, to be implemented by the Special Secretariat for the Social Inclusion of Roma, addressing also other elements of Roma inclusion, shall be considered in the concept note development stage.

Up to €2 million of the total eligible expenditure of the programme shall be allocated to an open call or a small grant scheme, with the aim of empowering the most deprived Roma communities, mainly through soft measures.

Bilateral Ambitions

€50,000 shall be allocated to the programme from the fund for bilateral relations. This does not prevent the Joint Committee for Bilateral Funds from allocating additional funds to the programme.
