Bradford Receives £11m Business Funding Boost
12th December 2017
Two areas within the Bradford district have been awarded more than £5.4m in matched EU funding via the Leeds City Region European Structural Investment Fund.
The funding is designed to support activity that addresses local needs and opportunities over the next five years.
It will lead to Community Led Local Development (CLLD) programmes being set up in Bradford to cover the City, Great Horton and Manningham wards and in Keighley to cover the Keighley East, Keighley West and Keighley Central wards.
The Bradford Central CLLD area has been granted £1.5m European Regional Development Funding (ERDF) from the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and £1.5m European Social Funding from the Department for Work and Pensions, which matched with local funding has the potential to deliver a £6m programme.
