The affected population consists of between 15,000 and 20,000 people spread over 400 settlements, almost half of which are located on the outskirts of Paris. Roma have moved from their home countries in Eastern Europe to flee poverty and prejudice in search of better conditions for their families. Applicants must have solid French language skills.

Applicants must submit their proposals and all supporting materials via the online application platform, CARAT.
