Dear Mr. Gray,

I write in response to your request for information disclosure under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000, in which you requested the following
information regarding the beneficiaries of funding from the EU Cohesion
Programme.

I confirm that Yorkshire Forward holds information similar to that which
you request. Please find attached an Excel spreadsheet which shows the
name of the beneficiary organisation, the name of the operation (project),
the Programme priority that the investment has been made under, the amount
of European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) committed in the contract,
the amount of ERDF paid to date, the amount of other public financing in
the contract, a start and finish date and the project's status.

It is worth mentioning that the EU Cohesion Policy is made up of the
'Cohesion Fund' and the `Structural Fund'. The UK is not eligible to
receive money from the `Cohesion Fund'. The attached information relates
to the `Structural Fund'. The information provided is updated regularly,
generally on a monthly basis and can be downloaded from the Yorkshire
Forward website. Go to [1]www.yorkshire-forward.com/erdf and follow the
links to Programme Progress, then Funded Projects where you will find a
link to an alphabetical list of beneficiaries.

I trust this information is of helpful to you.
