The European Commission, in particular the DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion (EMPL) is launching a call for tender regarding the topic of homelessness.
This contract for a pilot project on a European homelessness count aims at:
- identifying a common operational definition of homelessness and a common data collection methodology; and
- testing it at city level in different Member States.
By doing so, it will promote the regular and comparable collection of data on homelessness at local level. The results will inform local, national and European authorities and policymakers about the nature and scope of homelessness, and the different dimensions and profiles of homelessness. The project would also help to create public and political awareness about homelessness and contribute to creating a greater consensus to solve it. Finally, the project will work on proposing a common methodology, to allow making data comparable and drawing lessons about the profile of homeless people at EU level.

What is the difference between tenders and grants?
A grant is a monetary contribution to the activities that your entity is pursuing, as opposed to a tender, which is the distinction between the two. Grants are typically co-funded, which means that your organization will be responsible for part of the expenditures and the EU will cover the rest. This is so that the EU may fund these initiatives since they are consistent with its strategic goals.
Purchasing products and services is the focus of tenders and procurement. The EU must buy a good or a service and must pay the price that is being offered. No co-funding exists.
The deadline for applications is the 22nd of May 2023. For more information, please visit the Tenders Electronic Daily (TED)’s website.
