EU funding for 2021-2027

Date15 Oct 2021

EUR 76 bln from EU funds for Poland in 2021-2027

In the years 2021-2027, Poland will receive EUR 76 bln from the European Union budget – EUR 72.2 bln from cohesion policy and EUR 3.8 bln from the Equitable Transition Fund. These funds will be used for investments in the areas of infrastructure, environmental protection, energy, digitization, entrepreneurship, innovation and education and social affairs. On which national and regional programmes exactly will Poland allocate EU funds?

The Cohesion Policy 2021-2027 includes funds: European Regional Development Fund (ERDF – to strengthen economic and social cohesion), Cohesion Fund (CF – to reduce economic and social disparities and promote sustainable development), European Social Fund+ (ESF+ – to respond to labour market challenges) and Fair Transition Fund (FST – to mitigate the social and economic impacts of the energy transition). The European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF – to support coastal communities) will cover the Common Fisheries Policy.

New national programs

As in the previous EU financial perspective (2014-2020), the new one will allocate around 60% of cohesion policy funds to programmes implemented at national level, while 40% will go to regional programmes.

The distribution of funds to national programmes is similar to the 2014-2020 period. Therefore, cohesion policy funds will be invested, among others, in increasing human capital, infrastructure development and environmental protection, building digital competences and supporting Eastern Poland.
