ESIF Project Case Studies

The 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) Programme provides funds to help local areas stimulate growth. The funds support investment to improve local growth and create jobs.

The Technical Assistance Partnership (TAP) project has supported a range of applicants to submit outline and full applications resulting in successful projects being awarded contracts to deliver across the Humber and North Yorkshire areas. Funding has been awarded from both the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and European Social Fund (ESF) Programmes.

Please click on the links below to view a selection of case studies illustrating the successes of the applications supported by the TAP and how the projects themselves are supporting beneficiaries.
