E-001163/2018(ASW)
Answer given by Mr Avramopoulos on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-001163/2018

The Commission is aware of the difficulties non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in Poland face in accessing funding available under the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) and is in contact with the Polish authorities on the issue.

Open calls for proposals under AMIF, under which NGOs could apply, have been replaced by restricted calls directed to the local governments. The Polish authorities explained that the local governments have been involved in the implementation of the AMIF programme to ensure a broader geographical distribution of the funds. A recent restricted call relating to social affairs included possibility of partnerships by the local governments with NGOs. The Polish authorities informed the Commission that 7 out of 16 projects selected under this call will be implemented together with NGOs.

Another way for Polish NGOs to participate in actions benefitting from AMIF is to involve a partner NGO in another Member State and to apply to a transnational call for proposals for Union actions under AMIF. Such calls for proposals are accessible via the Migration and Home Affairs website(1).

In terms of Budget, AMIF represent less than 1% of the overall EU Budget for the multi-annual financial framework (MFF) period 2014-2020.
