The project aims to enhance the capacity of local governments to develop sustainable strategies and inclusive services for the successful social and economic integration of migrants.

The project is active in 35 municipalities across 7 EU member states: Italy (Bari, Cagliari, Florence, Naples, Milan, Palermo and Venice), Austria (Bruck an der Leitha, Telfs, Korneuburg, Kufstein and Schwaz in Tirol), Poland (Gdansk, Krakow, Poznań, Warsaw and Wroclav), Romania (Bucharest, Cluj, Galati and Oradea), Greece (Athens, Agios Dimitrios, Nea Philadelphia, Piraeus, Thessaloniki, Kalamaria, Neapoli and Herakleio), Spain (Madrid and Malaga) and Malta (Birzebbugia, Gzira, Marsa and Msida).

The actions will target vulnerable third-country new and long-term residents (including refugees) experiencing social and economic disadvantages. The project is in its second phase and will be implemented for 24 months, from July 2018 to June 2020. It is managed by the IOM office in Rome, Italy.

This project is funded with the support of the Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs & Inclusion of the European Commission.
