European Union Home Affairs Funds
In the programming period 2021–2027, the European Union's Home Affairs Funds (EUSA Funds) comprise three funds:
- Asylum, Immigration and Integration Fund (AMIF)
- Internal Security Fund (ISF)
- Border Management and Visa Instrument (BMVI)
EUSA funds promote effective management of immigration matters and a high level of security in the EU, and support integrated border security and the common visa policy.
In the programming period 2021–2027, the total funding Finland will receive from the EUSA funds will be approximately EUR 183 million.
In Finland, the authority managing the funds is the Ministry of the Interior, which is responsible for the implementation of the funds and for the monitoring and control of projects supported from the fund.
The programming period 2014–2020 of the EUSA funds began on 1 January 2014 and ended officially on 31 December 2020. However, the implementation of the programming period is still under way and will end on 31 December 2023.
