European Structural Funds

The European Structural and Investment Fund Strategy (ESIF)

The ESIF Strategy has £160+ million of Structural Funds from the EU which is the SELEP area’s indicative allocation awarded by the Government for the 2014 – 2020 EU funding period. These funds are for projects that will deliver growth and jobs.

ESIF funding was made up of the following funding for projects in the SELEP area.

  • £74.2 million European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)
  • £71.6 million European Social Fund (ESF) and
  • £14.5 million European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD)

SELEP’s Role

In 2012, SELEP was given an indicative allocation of £160+ million of EU funding for projects to create jobs and growth across the area. We created the ESIF Strategy after extensive stakeholder consultation and this was approved by the SELEP Strategic Board in December 2013 and submitted to the Government in January 2014.
