This data story provides an overview of the EU budget's absorption under "shared management" programmes in terms of net EU payments by Fund and by Member State. It covers the 2014-2020 and the 2021-2027 programming periods respectively (also called Multiannual Financial Frameworks - MFF). 
The data is refreshed each working day to reflect the most recent payment position. All amounts are in current prices. 

2014-2020 programming period

2014-2020 MFF

The Common Provisions Regulation (CPR) 2014-2020 funds included in this report are:
-   Cohesion Fund (CF)
-   European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD)
-   European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF)
-   European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)
-   European Social Fund (ESF)
-   Fund for European Aid for the Most Deprived (FEAD)
-   Youth Employment Initiative (YEI)

- Overview by Fund

The graph below provides an overview of the total absorption of the 2014-2020 MFF budgets by Fund. REACT-EU and EURI amounts are reflected separately in the following NextGenerationEU section.
The EAFRD data provides net payments for the rural development programmes 2014-2020. The EU allocations for years 2021 and 2022 are included in the rural development programmes 2014-2020, which were prolonged until 2022 under the transitional rules. (The 2014-2020 EAFRD programmes also received allocation under European Union Recovery Instrument (EURI) presented in the next section.)
Reading the charts and tables:
- The data reflect the latest payment position and may be refreshed each working day. In case there are no new payments on a working day the tables show the latest payment position.
- "ERDF" includes national and Interreg funding. To identify ERDF related Interreg payments look for "TC" (territorial cooperation) in the country table.

- Overview by Member State

The graph below provides an overview of the total absorption of the 2014-2020 budget by Member State for the same funds presented above.
REACT-EU amounts under ERDF, ESF and FEAD are not included in this tabular overview. 
Notes:
Country specific EU payment by fund can be found on the cohesion open data fund pages (MFF  + REACT-EU aggregated), with all data provided in more detail in this dataset.
- GR = EL in the 2014-2020 datasets.
- TC = Territorial Cooperation / Interreg funded by ERDF in EU-28. Payments to third countries under IPA and NDICI are not included.

NextGenerationEU: REACT-EU anEURI funding 2021-2022

REACT-EU constitutes additional EU budget resources financed by the EU Recovery Plan - NextGenerationEU.  An additional €50 billion (current prices) was allocated in 2021 and 2022 as a top-up to the 2014-2020 cohesion policy to ERDF and ESF programmes and to FEAD programmes in the Member States. The legal framework for the implementation of REACT-EU resources is set in the 2014-2020 CPR (Regulation (EU) 1303/2013). Therefore, the same deadlines in terms of eligibility and closure for the MFF part of the programmes apply also to the part financed by REACT-EU.
In a similar way, the EAFRD programmes 2014-2020, which were prolonged until 2022 under transitional rules received additional EU amounts under the the European Union Recovery Instrument (EURI) in 2021 and 2022.
The graphs below show the absorption of REACT-EU and EURI budgetary envelope (2021-2022 NGEU commitments) by Fund and by Member State.

- No REACT-EU allocations were made in the UK or under Territorial Cooperation / Interreg.

2021-2027 programming period

2023-2027 Common agricultural policy

The reformed Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) for the period 2023-2027 introduced a strategic approach and a new delivery model focused on performance and results. The new CAP consolidates the two existing funds – the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (EAGF) and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) - under the single umbrella of the CAP strategic plans covering funding for income support, rural development and support for certain sectors. A few schemes only, financed from the EAGF, continue to be implemented outside the CAP strategic plans (public intervention and private storage measures, exceptional measures, EU school scheme, information and promotion measures and support for the outermost regions and smaller Aegean islands). 
The strategic approach aims at bringing increased consistency, coherence, coordination and complementarity in how the budgets of the two funds are spent, maximising the impact of interventions and making EAGF and EAFRD intrinsically linked to effectively address the CAP objectives. Through the implementation of their respective CAP strategic plans, Member States collectively contribute to the achievement of the general and specific CAP objectives, including those set in the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), as well as targets set at EU level including those of the EU Green Deal.

- Overview of EAFRD

The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) data provides allocation and net payments for the 2023-2027 CAP Strategic Plans.
The EU allocations for years 2021 and 2022 are included in the rural development programmes 2014-2020, which were prolonged until 2022 under the transitional rules and cover the 2014-2022 MFF and the European Union Recovery Instrument (EURI) amounts. (See 2014-2020 presentation above).

- Overview of EAGF

The EAGF implementation table details the total amount of payments made for eligible expenditure declared for EAGF interventions under shared management mode (representing around 99.5% of the overall EAGF budget), by year and by Member State. It does not include (1) initial MS allocations (since not all EAGF interventions have pre-allocated envelopes) nor (2) amounts declared as assigned revenue.
The total amount of payments for all Member States and all the concerned interventions is compared to the respective budgeted needs, the latter including the voted appropriations as well as the assigned revenue estimated to be available. The result gives the EAGF implementation rate.
Notes:
-  Direct payments calendar year 2022 is paid under financial year 2023. 
In financial year 2023, the needs for direct payments were determined by the national ceilings for calendar year 2022 provided for in the CAP Transitional Regulation. Direct payments in financial year 2023 were therefore implemented according to the 2014-2022 rules (outside the CAP strategic plans).
-  Direct payments calendar year 2023 (the first year of the CAP strategic plans) is paid under financial year 2024.
