100% intervention rate funding is available to projects as part of a set of new measures introduced by the European Commission to mitigate the impact of Covid-19.
The FCE programme team has been working hard behind the scenes to secure additional support for projects in acknowledgement of the difficult operating circumstances brought about by the pandemic.
The 100% intervention rate funding will be available to all FCE projects for the current programme financial year, subject to eligibility.
The funding will be provided for eligible expenditure submitted to the European Commission between 01/07/2020 and 30/06/2021. Projects will receive the funding as part of the usual claims process and the increased intervention rate will be applied to previous claims within the period and will be backdated to 1 July 2020. This means there is no need for project leads or project partners to take any additional steps to receive the 100% intervention rate funding.
The payments will be made to the project lead and project partners once the Joint-Secretariat checklist has been signed and Certifying Authority checks have been carried out.
While the funding is available to all projects across all priority axes, there are some instances where projects will not be able to claim 100% rate. This includes:
