Integration in the European Union provides to the Member States new opportunities for financial resources for the financing of local development projects in the form of structural and cohesion funds. From the perspective of local authorities in Romania, the time of the structural funds brings with it new management rules involving a big degree of managerial capacity of the developed, which is a consequence of the implementation of the principle of local autonomy, but most of all, its component, financial autonomy. Access projects from the structural funds involves an extending process that is not visible as the local public finance reform, for the purposes of carrying out planning budget-based programs, monitoring financial performance indicators at the same time as those of impact, the result ,of what happened in the plan with concrete activities administered under programmes for funding. To ensure a higher percentage of co-financing involves the need to identify alternative solutions for local budget revenues. Also, local public authorities must take into account the importance of appropriate training of personnel (civil servants and employees of the contract) in order to be able to access and manage appropriate money from the structural funds. The paper aims to establish the regulatory framework of local autonomy at the international and national level and analyze financial resources from the structural and cohesion funds, attracting attention to the role in the strengthening of the administrative-territorial units autonomy.
