EURoma event addresses making better use of European Funds for Roma housing

The Agency participated in an event organised by the European Network on Roma Inclusion under ESI Funds (EURoma) on using ESI Funds to provide adequate housing solutions for Roma families.

The event in Madrid from 20 to 21 November was hosted by the Fundación Secretariado Gitano, the technical secretariat of the platform. The meeting brought together public authorities responsible for Roma policies and those responsible for ESI Funds, as well as representatives of the European Commission and FRA.

FRA gave a presentation in the opening session on the situation of Roma housing, as well as the EU level legal framework with respect to the right to housing.
