How to apply

Gateshead Goes Local is a two stage application process. Stage one involves completion of an Expression of Interest form (EOI). EOIs will then be assessed and checked for eligibility by the Accountable Body and the Local Action Group (LAG), those recommended will then be invited to complete a full application.

Matched funding does not have to be in place ahead of the expression of interest submission. It will need to be in place before full approval.

Funding will only be confirmed after the Stage 2 application is approved by the LAG. Gateshead Council has agreed to be the Accountable Body for the LAG and will administer funding on its behalf.
