Title: European funding
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
A potential source of funding for the NRA is through the receipt of grants via European funding as opposed to directly from UK Government. In essence there are 3 major funding areas of interest to the NRA: Structural Funds; R and D Programme; Finance for the Environment (LIFE). The purpose of these funds is to set up to strengthen economic and social cohesion between the member countries and aid economic development of the poorer regions. The 4 funds have been set up to support this aim and areas eligible for support are nominated by national Governments and ratified by the Commission. Regions qualifying for support must fall under one of 5 objectives. These objectives are described in Annex 1 of this paper together with details of the areas that qualify.
