Bodies Responsible for ERDF in Ireland

A designated managing authority provides information on the programme, selects projects and monitors implementation.

In Ireland the designated Managing Authorities for the ERDF are the Northern & Western Regional Assembly and the Southern Regional Assembly.

The Regional Assemblies will continue as Managing Authorities for the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Operational Programmes for the 2021 – 2027 programming period.

Ireland is likely to receive €350m in ERDF funding in the period 2021-2027.
Reflecting the two different EU classifications of the development status of different regions in Ireland, the Regional Development Model will create two Operational Programmes:

1. The area designated as ‘Region in Transition’, (as its GDP is 75%-100% of the EU27 average), is to be managed by the Northern Western Regional Assembly (NWRA)

2. The two regions designated as ‘More Developed’, (as the GDP in each of the regions is over 100% of the EU average), is to be managed by the Southern Regional Assembly (SRA).
