Community-led local development strategy

The development and implementation of a community-led local development (CLLD) programme in Tilbury is overseen by the Tilbury Local Action Group.

In developing the strategy, the group consulted locally-based organisations, networks and community partnerships that have strong links with local residents.

The strategy was approved by the group in August 2016, and funding to implement the strategy was approved in October 2018.

Grants and funding

A programme of small business grants and funding for organisations that offer support into employment or training programmes, will be launched in March 2019 and will run until 31 December 2022.

The application period for a second round of European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) funding is now open.
