Government has confirmed that all signed ESIF projects are guaranteed funding up to the point when the UK departs the EU – even when these projects continue after we have left the EU. Projects will have to demonstrate good value for money and be in line with domestic strategic priorities.
During the operational phase of these programmes, between now and 2020, a series of “Calls for Applications” will be arranged by the programme Managing Authorities (MAs) and announced on the www.gov.uk website. The Managing Authorities of the programmes are:
The MAs retain the liability for the EU Funds at national level and carry out the technical assessment of all project applications including eligibility, the gateway criteria and the value for money checks.

The ESIF Sub-Committee’s job is to give a view on the strategic fit of projects with the LEP’s ESIF strategy, the Strategic Economic Plan and also the SELEP area.
The Sub-Committee also agrees the content, size and scale of a rolling programme of future calls for applications.
The committee is formally constituted according to national terms of reference and reports to the National Growth Board. It is chaired by businessman and National Growth Board member, George Kieffer
