The Agency for Providing IDPs, Eco-Migrants, and Sources of Livelihood has commenced the acceptance of applications as part of the State Program of Reintegration Assistance for Returned Migrants to Georgia.
As outlined by the Ministry of Health, the program’s objective is to aid the reintegration process of Georgian citizens who are returning from emigration. The program aims to foster income generation, employment, and self-employment by providing funding for approximately 100 projects. The application process occurs in two stages each year, with grants being awarded to a total of up to 200 migrants.
“Returned migrants will select the inventory, equipment, and tools necessary for initiating or expanding their own businesses.
Citizens of Georgia (or stateless individuals with permanent residency rights in Georgia) are eligible to participate in the program if they have engaged in illegal residence abroad for over a year, have sought asylum, or have been granted asylum and have returned to their homeland within the past 12 months,” explained the Ministry of Health.
The acceptance of applications at the Agency and its territorial branches will be ongoing until September 12. Alternatively, applicants can also submit their applications to the agency’s designated email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
