ERDF Call and Application Process
To access ERDF funding, projects are selected through calls. A call is an open invitation for applicants to submit outline applications against a published specification. This sets out the value of funding available, the outputs and type of activity sought, and the timetable and process by which projects will come forward and be assessed and selected.
Calls will be published at regular intervals through the lifetime of the programmes with the timing of calls and their scope discussed between the Managing Authority (Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government) and the D2N2 ESIF sub-committee.
All calls for activity in the D2N2 area will be published in this section of the website. There are currently no ERDF open calls at the moment. The other links below are for information only about previous calls. The ERDF National Reserve Fund is being allocated to the COVID-19 recovery. To date ERDF National Reserve Fund has been used for a £50m ERDF Reopening High Streets Safely Fund and a £10m tourism kick-start programme.
Calls for other LEP areas are available here.
This project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 in England.
