Applying for ERDF funding

Applications for ERDF are submitted directly to DCLG for consideration in a two-step process.
An outline application is submitted in response to an Open Call and is assessed for eligibility.
If the project application is deemed eligible, the application is invited to submit a full application, which is fully appraised for compliance and strategic fit.
