EU Cohesion Funding for the period 2021 to 2027

The Northern & Western Regional Assembly along with our Colleagues in The Southern Regional Assembly, The Eastern and Midland Regional Assembly, The Department of Public Expenditure and Reform & The Department of Education and Skills are coordinating a Public Consultation exercise relating to EU Cohesion Funding for the period 2021 to 2027.

This engagement process will help identify the priorities for the 2021 to 2027 Partnership Agreement and Operational Programmes for the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+).

There are two parts to the Public Consultation Process.

  1. A survey to receive the views and submissions on all elements of the EU Cohesion Funds and priorities for the forthcoming Operational Programmes for ERDF and ESF+ 2021 – 2027.
  2. Stakeholders have an opportunity to express their views at a consultation workshop scheduled for Tuesday 28th July 2020. This workshop will be conducted virtually.

Detailed information and links to the survey and the workshop can be found on

We thank you in advance for your interest and participation and we look forward to engaging with you, or your organisation, on this critically important policy for our country over the coming years.
