What is a Call?

A call is an invitation to apply to run projects backed by the European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF). ESIF includes money from the European Social Fund (ESF), European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD).

How to apply

Applicants should apply through the website, where you will find the full details and guidance notes. If you would like to discuss a potential project or need help or support completing your application, all seven local authorities in the North East LEP area have a team who can help you. You can find their contact details here.
