The programme remains fully committed and £838,959,958 has been paid out from the European Regional Development Fund since 1 May 2010 and £526,182,985 remains to be claimed by grant recipients. We have extended some project activity into the autumn to ensure that opportunities to spend remaining funds are maximised by the deadline of the end of December 2015.
