New ESF Call launched

07 March 2019

A London call for proposals under ESF Priority Axes 1 and 2 – Inclusive Labour Markets and Skills for Growth – has been launched on 28th February. The deadline for Applications is 23:59 on Thursday 9th May 2019.

Ca. £71m of ESF is available across both priorities of the Programme. Projects’ size must be at least £1m and applicants need to provide 50% of the match funding.

Please note that these calls are open for direct bids only. Co-Financing Organisations procure their own provision separately.

Projects can start, at their own risk, delivering activities from May 2019 but must be completed by December 2023 and applicants must avoid duplicating existing and planned ESF provision.

The call specifications for London can be accessed through the Government’s website for the ESIF programme European Growth Funding. National rules and guidance documents to help applicants bid for funds can also be found on this website.

There is a Q and A factsheet on the ESIF homepage of theLEAP website, please refer to this regularly for information about the call.
