Since 2011, the Environment Agency has received no partnership funding from European Union funds to deliver flood and coastal risk management schemes.

Between 2014 and 2016, East Riding of Yorkshire Council has received £4.8 million from the European Regional Development Fund, administered by the Department for Communities and Local Government, for the Willerby and Derringham Flood Alleviation Scheme. The scheme was delivered in partnership with Hull City Council and the Environment Agency.
