The Greater London Authority (GLA) European Programmes Management Unit is responsible for London’s 2014-20 European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and European Social Fund (ESF) programmes; and various GLA teams have also applied for funding from those programmes.

The GLA has also successfully applied for funding from ‘transnational’ programmes such as Horizon 2020; which are managed directly by the EU.

Please find attached a table of current GLA projects and the funding awarded to them. It is anticipated that an additional £140m will be awarded to the GLA Co-Financing Organisation programme later this year. This will comprise £70m ESF matched with an equivalent sum from the Adult Education Budget. 

Additional ERDF funding for the RE:FIT and Better Futures projects has also been approved in principle, subject to conclusion of the ERDF appraisal process that is now underway.
