The Special EU Programmes Body is seeking your views on the draft content of the European Union funded PEACE PLUS Programme (2021-2027), worth approximately €1bn. It has been designed following a comprehensive cross border stakeholder engagement process, early last year that included 16 different consultation events, with over 1,000 people in attendance. Over 300 survey responses were submitted. A full report of the survey’s findings can be found here.
PEACE PLUS is a new funding programme designed to support peace and prosperity across Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland, building upon the work of the previous PEACE and INTERREG Programmes. The design reflects the importance of peace-building activity, but also the importance of actions that will contribute positively to the economy, building prosperity and adjusting to the new environment and challenges we face.
The consultation started on Wednesday 10 March 2021 and will end at 5pm on Wednesday 12 May 2021.
The purpose of this public consultation is to provide citizens, and other key stakeholders, with an opportunity to share their views on the content and administrative arrangements of the PEACE PLUS Programme, findings from the Equality Screening exercise and the Strategic Environmental Assessment.
