Temporary halt to ESF match funding needs; rural housing renovation now eligible?


As flagged up in May's Bulletin, and as announced in the Communication ''A shared Commitment for Employment'', adopted in early June, the European Commission has now published a proposal for a Council regulation for simplifying management rules for cohesion policy in light of the current economic crisis. The measures proposed include the possibility for Member States to abolish the obligation of co-financing requirements for European Social Fund (ESF) projects for the period 2009-10 on the basis that these will be repaid in the following years when normal co-financing arrangements will be restored. This measure would thus not modify the overall ESF budget and its allocation among the Member States.

Among the other suggestions is the possibility of using European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) for financing projects renovating or developing housing for communities faced by social exclusion, both in rural and urban areas. Previously it was possible to use resources from the ERDF only for renovating housing in urban areas. The proposal will now need to be approved by the European Parliament and Council.
