National Recovery and Resilience Plan

The National Recovery and Resilience Plan sets out priority spending for Ireland under the European Union Recovery and Resilience Facility – the heart of the European Union’s response to COVID-19.

The Facility is the key element of the €750 billion Next Generation EU/Recovery Plan Package agreed by the European Council in July 2020.

€853 million of the fund is expected to come to Ireland in 2021 and 2022 with further allocations expected in 2023 depending on economic developments.

Irelands plan must be submitted for approval by the European Commission by April 30th.

Aims of the Recovery and Resilience Facility

  • To mitigate the economic and social impact of the pandemic
  • Make European economies and societies more sustainable, resilient and better prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the green and digital transitions.
