The Department is responsible for the management of the England European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) programme.

The Government announced in October 2016 that it will guarantee EU funding for European Structural and Investment (ESI) Funds projects that are signed before the UK's departure from the EU and which provide good value for money and support domestic priorities, even when these projects continue after we have left the EU. The England ERDF programme is covered by this guarantee.

As a result, British businesses and other organisations have additional certainty and can continue to apply for EU funding while the UK remains a member of the EU.
