The post 2020 Cohesion Policy Legislative package, which includes the combined European Regional Development and Cohesion Fund Regulation, and the Multi-annual Financial Framework, which sets the overall EU Budget for the next programming period, are still under negotiation and remain to be finalised. However, I can confirm that European Regional Development Funding will continue to be delivered in all of the regions post 2020, including the Northern and Western Region.
