Response to EU Peace Funding Consultation

A public consultation on a new round of EU peace funding for Northern Ireland has taken place.

The EU has committed to fund projects up to 2027, despite Brexit.

The Peace Plus programme will have a total value of about €600m (£511m), with about €120m (£102m) of that from the EU. The additional funds will come from the British and Irish governments.

NI and the border counties of the Republic of Ireland have received more than €3bn in EU peace projects since 1995. The programme has helped fund developments like the Peace Bridge in Londonderry and numerous projects supporting victims and survivors, children, business and regeneration.

The 2021-2027 Peace Plus Programme is likely to target projects aimed at tackling and adapting to climate change, among other things.

The scheme will continue to be managed by the Special European Union Programmes Body (SEUPB).
