The 2020 edition of ‘Supporting Local Growth’ has been released. Showcasing the success of projects and programmes receiving funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 2014 to 2020 programme in England.
ERDF funding has continued to play a key role in supporting growth in places through a wide range of projects – from helping businesses start, sustain and develop, creating new or improved infrastructure, to supporting local communities, and our environment.
In what has been a year dominated by COVID-19 the Managing Authority for ERDF, the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), has worked closely across government, with national and local organisations and with the European Commission to develop measures that have played an important part in helping communities respond to pressures created by the pandemic.
This included an £80million ERDF package of investment for our businesses and places, supporting the safe reopening of our high streets and businesses in the visitor economy and other sectors.
