Migrants to receive grants

Up to 100 migrants, who returned to Georgia from immigration, will receive grants as a source of income and for self-employment.

According to the Georgian Agency for IDPs and Eco-Migrants, the purpose of giving grants is to contribute to the social reintegration of migrants.

Besarion Simonishvili, Agency Director said that applications to participate in the program are received twice a year.

“About 100 migrants, who will receive state funding, were revealed by a special commission based on the preliminarily determined criteria,” he said.

The participants selected equipment and inventory to launch or expand their businesses. The program also envisages providing professional training, medical assistance and temporary living space.
