Five main Funds work together to support economic development across all EU countries, in line with the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy:

+ European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)
+ European Social Fund (ESF)
+ Cohesion Fund (CF)
+ European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD)
+ European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF)

Every EU region may benefit from the ERDF and ESF. However, only the less developed regions may receive support from the Cohesion Fund.

+ European Union Solidarity Fund
The European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF) provides assistance in case of major natural disasters.

+ Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance
Support for EU candidate and potential candidate countries is available via the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA).
