The Steering Committee

Like the Programme Monitoring Committee, Steering Committee members represent local and regional government, as well as social and economic partners representing business, trade unions, and the voluntary, environmental and equality sectors. 

The PMC delegates responsibility to the Steering Committee which makes the final decision on whether or not funding is awarded to projects which have submitted applications. 

When calls for applications are made, a calendar of fixed Steering Committee dates is also published so that there is transparency around the targets for processing times. 

The Steering Committee meets as required throughout the year.
