Announcing the migrant integration funding, Minister Stanton said:
“I have already funded 20 projects, with total grants of €4.5m in 2017 to support migrant integration projects over a three-year period. I am continuing funding to some of these existing projects and have added some new ones as part of 19 projects allocated grant funding of €4.5m to cover 2019-22.
