Migrant and Refugee Fund
The Migrant and Refugee Fund ("MRF" or "Fund") is a trust fund set up by the Council of Europe Development Bank ("CEB or "Bank") to help its member states deal with migrant and refugee flows.
How is MRF funded
The MRF is endowed with contributions from CEB member states, the European Investment Bank and the CEB. At end 2016, almost € 21 million have been raised.
What type of projects does MRF support?
As an immediate response to the inflow of migrants and refugees, the Fund will help set up or improve, as well as operate reception and transit centres. Other types of projects which facilitate the integration of migrant and refugees are also eligible. All projects must comply with the European Convention on Human Rights and the European Social Charter. At end 2016, the CEB has approved more than € 18 million in grants from the MRF in favour of 14 projects.
