As the UK allocation from the Fund for European Aid to the Most Deprived (FEAD) is deducted from our European Social Fund and the European Regional Development Fund allocations, we minimised the adverse impact on those funds by taking the lowest possible allocation.

The UK’s allocation for the period 2014-2020 is €3.96m in current prices.
