  6. 6. National Opt-in Services Decisions ‘ring-fence’ 23% of ERDF and 80% of ESF allocations for opt-ins. Opt-In Decision Initial Period of opt-in Amount £ (per year or total) ERDF MAS Opt IN 3 years 200-400k pa Growth Accelerator Opt IN 3 years 150-250k pa UKTI Trade Opt IN 3 years 200-400k pa Low Carbon Fund Opt IN Duration 3,000,000 ESF Skills Funding Agency Opt IN Duration 25,091,000 Big Lottery Fund Opt IN Duration 7,443,803
  7. 7. Community Led Local Development • Bottom-up approach to strategic decision- making – funding through Local Action Groups. • EC are keen on this mechanism • 7.5% of the programme (ERDF and ESF only) allocated to CLLD (£6m) • Complementary to LEADER approach in rural areas • Can include urban areas for the first time • CLLD areas yet to be confirmed – likely to include Norwich and Gt. Yarmouth / Lowestoft
  8. 8. Social inclusion – Big Lottery / CLLD • £7.4m ESF through BIG - £15m total with match • Targeted at those furthest from the labour market, education or training • Local bespoking • Expectation of significant VCS routing • Delivery specifics to be agreed • Plus £6m (£12m) through CLLD
  9. 9. Governance and Delivery • LEPs will not have an official role in the administration of the EU funds. Government is still negotiating delivery models and “business process” with the EC, who remain concerned about risk. • Possible mix of ‘commissioning’ and ‘open bidding’ • It is anticipated that some resource (technical assistance) will be made available locally to assist in delivery. • Likely to require establishment of broad multi-partner local ‘Investment Committee’ to review projects. • Norfolk County Council, in partnership with NALEP and Suffolk County Council have secured some funding from the current ERDF programme to support project pipeline.
  10. 10. Outputs and Results • ≈ 5,000 businesses supported • ≈ 1,000 start-up businesses supported • ≈ 2,000 new jobs created • ≈ 20,000 participants in skills and training • ≈ 10,000 young people supported
  11. 11. What now? • Opportunities for public, private and VCS projects. • Start thinking about projects • Work collaboratively • 3 new ‘EU Facilitators’ in post soon
  12. 12. NALEP VCSE Challenge Fund • £250k of Growing Places Fund • Start in April 2014 • Rolling out GCGP model • Run by Norfolk and Suffolk Community Foundations • 9 awards of 20k, then 2 of £25k • 75 people into work and 250 ‘work ready’
