Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Department for Communities and Local Government is the Managing Authority for ERDF, and ERDF rules will be published on its website in early 2015.  It is anticipated that the following will be eligible: local authorities, statutory or non-statutory public funded bodies, voluntary/community organisations, private sector organisations.

ERDF is allocated via open, competitive calls for proposals; the first of which will be launched next year once the Government and European Commission have concluded their negotiations on the England-wide programme.  Details will be publicised on the London Enterprise Panel website at
