We are launching a new open call for proposals aimed at concluding new framework partnership agreements to provide post-arrival and post-return assistance in 39 countries of origin, with qualified service providers from the non-profit sector, international organisations and national authorities from EU Member States and Schengen Associated Countries for a period of two and a half years (with the possibility of a two-year extension). 

These requested services shall include both post-arrival and post-return or reintegration assistance, include:

  • long-term housing,
  • medical assistance,
  • job counselling,
  • education,
  • assistance in setting up a small business, and
  • family reunification.

The budget earmarked for the co-financing of activities under this Call for Proposals is EUR 30 million for the period 2023-2026.

Frontex aims to support up to 7000 persons annually, both individuals and families, depending on the needs of the Member States and the available budget.

Together with the current geographical coverage, Frontex will be able to provide support in 82 countries of origin.
