ERDF - Merseyside
The maximum ERDF intervention rate for any project will be 50%. This means that ERDF can contribute up to 50% of the ‘total eligible’ project costs, subject to State Aid regulations. The remaining 50% or more must come from other eligible sources.
Match funding is money used to match the ERDF grant and can come from a wide range of sources, either public or private. It may come from the applicant, external finance or the applicant may have secured a grant offer towards the project costs. Match from other EU funding streams are not allowed.
ERDF is not paid in advance and expenditure must be defrayed prior to submission of claims.
ERDF in the North West is managed by the Department for Communities and Local Government through offices in Birchwood, Warrington.
