The following organisations can apply for a subsidy: non-profit organisations and federations.

In 2023, two types of subsidies are offered to associations in the framework of the call:

More specifically the Ministry for the Family, Integration and the Greater Region concludes a partnership agreement with certain organisations to carry out activities in favour of integration.

In 2023, the Ministry for the Family, Integration and the Greater Region will finance the activities of ASTI, CLAE, CEFIS and Caritas:

  • The agreement with Caritas covers 2 areas: Reception (Structuring the offer) and the Oasis Centre.
  • CEFIS is active in the pilot municipalities of the "Pakt vum Zesummeliewen", conducting a study on racism and ethno-racial discrimination and raising awareness about voter registration through training of multipliers.
  • CLAE promotes the reception, information, orientation and training of individuals on the one hand, and supports the expression of associations and citizenship on the other, while seeking to promote new citizen paradigms.
