The Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPD) is seeking your views on the draft content of the European Union funded PEACE PLUS Programme (2021-2027), which is worth approximately €1bn.

It is a new funding Programme designed to support peace and prosperity across Northern Ireland and the border counties of Ireland, building upon the work of the previous PEACE and INTERREG Programmes.

The design reflects the importance of peacebuilding activity, but also the importance of actions that will contribute positively to the economy, building prosperity and adjusting to the new environment and challenges we face.

Empowering communities is a central theme, as is supporting the personal development, mental health and well-being of young people; reskilling and upskilling; improving access to healthcare; and the protection of the natural environment.

The Programme will also invest in cross-border transport infrastructure and will encourage cross-border cooperation and partnership building.

The consultation started on Wednesday 10 March and will end at 5pm on Wednesday 12 May 2021.
