Building in agency know-how in using EU funds

FRA joined other EU justice and home affairs agencies in a European Commission meeting on the new 2021-2027 HOME Funds. The funds include the Asylum Migration and Integration Fund, the Border Management and Visa Instrument, and the Internal Security Fund.

The funds should enter into force in July. The legal frameworks require the European Commission to ensure that Member States consider the knowledge and expertise of the relevant agencies in developing national programmes. The meeting informed agencies how they would be consulted on these programmes. The meeting took place on 22 June.
