We’re excited to announce the launch of our new initiative called Micro Projects. The new scheme is aimed at encouraging smaller organisations to get involved in cross-border projects.
Small businesses, local authorities and charities will be able to apply for as much as 80% EU funding towards their projects under the new scheme. The time period for submitting project applications opens on the 6 April and closes on the 4 May.
The Programme Area covers the South and East Coasts of England from Cornwall to Norfolk, and the North Coast of France from Finistère to Pas-de-Calais. It has been enlarged from the previous programme to include the formerly adjacent areas of Somerset, Wiltshire, Surrey Cambridgeshire, Morbihan, Orne, Eure, Oise and Pas-de-Calais. Additionally, it now includes the Borough of Swindon and Peterborough.
The minimum requirement for a project to be eligible is for the partnership to have at least one English Partner and at least one French Partner, both based in the Programme Area.
