County development plans
The TAPE should not be implemented as a standalone employment action plan. Applicants have to learn socio-economic development plans of counties that are involved into the TAPE’s target area and develop their TAPE in line with the existing regional development plans. In both member states several sectorial initiatives are in progress that are financed by mainstream programs, state budget resources, other community funds (European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and European Social Fund) or other programmes financed by European Regional Development Fund supporting employment or mobility initiatives. In order to reach the maximum effectivity of the different initiatives applicants shall design the TAPE to integrate actions in field of employment and labour mobility financed by other resources.
