The cohesion policy is the European Union's main investment policy. It benefits all regions and cities of the Union and promotes economic growth, job creation, business competitiveness, sustainable development and environmental protection.
The European Union supports the achievement of these objectives through the use of the European Structural and Investment Funds (the ESF, the ERDF, the Cohesion Fund, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD), the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF)) and, from 2021, the Just Transition Fund (FTJ). These funds are distributed among all EU countries on the basis of criteria and objectives set out in the different Multiannual Financial Frameworks.
Since Spain joined the EU in 1986, the Directorate General for European Funds has been the authority responsible for Spain's budgetary relations with the EU and for the management of European funds. This website offers information on all the European funds managed in Spain, through the different administrations, as well as information related to the different periods (multiannual frameworks), main novelties and Spain's communication obligations before the EU in terms of European funds.
La Dirección General de Fondos Europeos is divided into the following sub-directorates:
