The Community budget (now in force that of the seven-year period 2014-2020, visible at the link), includes, among other expenses, also those destined for community funding, which can be divided into:
- Directly managed loans: management is entrusted to the Member States through central and regional administrations. They are the structural funds, which finance regional policy, social and training programs and agriculture (including support for farmers).
- Indirectly managed funds: managed directly by the European Commission, which issues programs in various sectors (health, citizenship, environment, consumer protection, energy, etc.) and then calls for tenders (or notices to submit proposals)
