Grant for Regional & Local Government

Interreg Europe helps regional and local governments across Europe to develop and deliver better policy. By creating an environment and opportunities for sharing solutions, they aim to ensure that government investment, innovation and implementation efforts all lead to integrated and sustainable impact for people and places.

Funding for Interreg Europe projects is allocated through calls for project proposals – periods of time during the year when applications can be submitted. Each call has an opening and closing date and outside of these dates it is not possible to apply for funding with a project proposal.

Applications are submitted online through the Interreg Europe online system (iOLF). The system may be available shortly before the call opens, so that applicants can register and start preparing their applications. The ‘Submit application’ button, however, is active only during an open call. 

Specific terms of reference are published for each call (see examples below). They can define specific criteria for each call, for example the maximum amount of funding available, the topics open for funding and so on.

Interreg Europe held two calls for project proposals so far (2015 and 2016 - see details below). The monitoring committee of the programme is likely to decide on the third call for project proposals by the end of 2016.
