Polish regions will get more funds in the 2014-2020 budget than in the previous budgetary period, Deputy Minister for Regional Development Paweł Orłowski said. The funds – an estimated €22.8 billion – will come from the European Regional Development Fund and the European Social Fund.
The exact amount is calculated by the European Commission using an algorithm that takes into account population numbers, unemployment levels, the difference between GDP and purchasing power, and other factors. In the financial framework about to end, Polish regions received €19.8 billion from the EU's cohesion fund.
According to preliminary calculations, every voivodship except for Warmińsko-Mazurskie will recieve more funds than in the current financial framework. The biggest beneficiary will be the Silesia voividship (€2.78 billion), while Lubuskie will receive the smallest amount (€728 million). Some voivodships can also apply for funds from other EU programs.
