European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) - Current Calls

Sheffield City Region has an allocation of just over €200 million of funding through the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) to invest in projects and initiatives between 2014 and 2020.

Our European Structural Investment Fund Strategy strategy sets out how we intend to invest ESIF resources.

Part of the ESIF funding is allocated through ‘calls’. This is where we invite funding applications for a particular theme or initiative outlined in our ESIF Plan. All calls are published on our website here and on the Government’s ESIF website https://www.gov.uk/european-structural-investment-funds
