PEACEPLUS Programme 2022-2027

This project will be funded by the European Union’s PEACEPLUS Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body

The PEACEPLUS Programme is a unique cross-border initiative, financed through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) of the European Union and managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB). It has been designed to support peace and reconciliation in Northern Ireland and the Border Region of Ireland. In addition to supporting peace and reconciliation, the ERDF also contributes to the promotion of social and economic stability, in particular through actions to promote cohesion between communities.

The eligible area for the PEACEPLUS Programme for 2021-2027 is Northern Ireland and the Border Counties of Ireland (Donegal, Cavan, Leitrim, Louth, Monaghan and Sligo). Cross-border co-operation is encouraged within all projects seeking funding under the PEACE PLUS Programme.

The overall objective of the PEACEPLUS Programme will be to build Peace and Prosperity and ensure that this programme will leave a lasting and tangible legacy across NI and the border counties of Ireland. The Programme’s strategy is to continue to take the opportunities and address the needs arising from the peace process in order to boost economic growth and stimulate social and economic regeneration and secondly, to promote social inclusion, particularly for those at the margins of economic and social life.

The Programme will help to address many long-standing social and economic challenges which have, and continue to impact on communities, particularly those in rural border areas, as well as ongoing challenges that exist in urban settings.
