CHART CLLD has access to some £2.8m of European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) to support projects that bring a fresh approach to tackling deep-rooted problems in deprived communities within Hastings and Bexhill. It is particularly focused on:
"Helping disadvantaged people to find and keep work locally"
"Helping disadvantaged people to start a business or set up as self-employed"
"Stimulating the local economy to create jobs suitable for local people"
The Local Action Group will oversee the programme as well as considering and deciding upon funding for projects.
