Cohesion policy Frequently Asked Questions


5. Who is eligible for financing from the Structural Funds?

There are many potential recipients who would qualify if they applied, but who are unaware that they are eligible – businesses (especially small businesses), public bodies, associations, and individuals. All projects will be considered provided they meet the selection criteria decided on by the managing authority for the relevant programme. Foreign firms with a base in Europe are also eligible. Under the rules for the 2007-13 programming period, each EU country must publish up-to-date lists of all those receiving assistance from the Structural Funds.
