Post-Brexit funding update

29/01/2020

 

The UK Government has issued an update about funding regarding the UK’s exit from the European Union.

On January 21, a letter was sent by the Ministry of Housing, Communities, and Local Government (MHCLG) to UK project partners of European Territorial Cooperation Programmes (ETC). The letter reads:

 “I am writing to let you know that the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has stood down the preparations for leaving the EU without a deal for ETC Programmes. We expect the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill (WAB) to be passed imminently. Once this has been ratified by the EU at the end of January this means that ETC Programmes will be able to continue as originally planned to the end of the current Programme.

You and all UK project partners should continue to deliver project activities and make claims to the Joint Secretariat/ Managing Authorities in accordance with the rules and requirements set out by your Programme and Joint Secretariat until your project end date. This also means that there should be no change for UK lead partners or the claims and payment processes. In addition, you are also eligible to apply for further ETC (Interreg) funding as part of this current 2014-2020 Programme period.”

If you have any queries on this matter please contact MHCLG on etcteam@communities.gov.uk
