The below Parliamentary question was asked by Steve Reed on 2016-03-07.

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, how much funding for investment has been made available for local authorities through the European Regional Development Fund during the 2014 to 2020 programme.

England has been allocated €3.6 billion (approximately £2.6 billion) through the 2014-20 European Regional Development Fund Programme.

No funding has been specifcially ring-fenced for local authority areas. Local authorities are able to respond to open calls for projects and compete alongside other potential funding receipients.
