Funds for migrant integration in Hungary


Non-profit organisations and local authorities can apply for financing through several EU funds; however, funds administered by the government are not open for integration-related projects.

In addition, national and private funds are made available for service providers and other stakeholders to carry out projects dedicated to the integration of migrants. In recent years, UNHCR has become the only funder of direct integration services to beneficiaries of international protection. Occasionally, the government provides funding for the integration of particular groups of immigrants such as Venezuelans of Hungarian origin, as well as persecuted Christian families relocated from Middle-Eastern and South-Asian countries.

The information below will be updated once the 2021-2027 national programmes under the EU funds become available. Read more about integration governance in Hungary.
