The legislative package which underpins the ESF+, the Common Provisions Regulation, and the ESF+ Regulation, entered into force in June 2021.
There are a number of ‘thematic concentration’ requirements for ESF+, meaning areas where Member States must spend a minimum amount of their allocation. Ireland is required to spend 25% of the ESF+ allocation on social inclusion measures, 5% on tackling child poverty, and 3% on addressing material deprivation. An ‘appropriate amount’ must also be spent on youth employment and capacity building of social partners and civil society organisations. Member States are also required to support actions of social innovation with a higher rate of EU co-finance of up to 95% available for such activities (for up to 5% of the national ESF+ allocation).
