The Department's role in respect of the European Union Interreg Community Initiative is to represent Government and stakeholder interests in the direction and management of the Interreg programmes in which the Department is involved. The Department also works with stakeholders who seek support and advice on preparing proposals for projects which might be supported by the programmes. The Department has in the past provided match funding to support some projects.
