The paper presents a study of accessing the European funds by the companies in the private sector, aiming to the impact of their implementation on their own economic activity and on the studied locality. The content of this study was elaborated starting from and considering exclusively the information provided on the basis of a questionnaire which included 12 questions, on a sample formed of 18 private beneficiaries of the SAPARD funds and/or EARDF. The research objectives were: to identify the main sources of information on the European funds; the main sources of co-financing of the private beneficiaries; the appreciation by the beneficiaries of the manner of submitting projects and identifying the satisfaction degree regarding their mechanism of implementation; analyzing the impact that these projects had on the direct and indirect beneficiaries. The impact of using grants on the labor market is particularly favorable. This is demonstrated by the results of the survey: more than half (53.6%) of those questioned said that following the investment, more than 3 jobs were created.
