Still time to apply for share of £1.6m European funding

Organisations in Corby are being urged to apply for a share of £1.6m being made available by the European Regional Development Fund.

There are two weeks to the deadline for applications for financial support for projects which contribute to economic development and regeneration, promote competitiveness and deliver sustainable development.

Leader of Corby Council, Cllr Tom Beattie, said: “For projects across the borough fitting into the criteria, this opportunity should not be missed.

“The European Regional Development Fund has successfully supported local communities across the country so it’s great news that Corby people have the opportunity to apply for funding to help their project along. I would urge those who fit into the bracket to apply now.”

Outline application forms can be found at www.corby.gov.uk/site-page/european-funding, along with the local investment plan, a prospectus and eligibility criteria.

All application forms must be submitted by 4pm on Friday, September 28.
