Keighley has been successful in securing £2.4m of European Structural Investment Funds managed by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and the Department of Works and Pensions

The funding for Keighley includes £1.4m from the European Regional Development Fund (MHCLG) and £1m from the European Social Fund (DWP) amounting to 50% of the total programme value of £4.8m

To achieve the total value of the programme, the funding will be matched by delivery partners and commissioned activity deliverers

There is no match funding from Central Government but with the assistance of Bradford Council, Keighley CLLD has been successful in securing additional public funding of £500, 000

This will allow for activity deliverers to benefit from a reduced amount of match funding with their contribution down from the original 50% to an average of 40%
