The Mid Wales Growth Deal Final Deal Agreement was signed by all three parties on 13 January 2022, setting out a Welsh Government, UK Government and Growing Mid Wales Board framework for how the Deal will be delivered. This includes the critical underpinning arrangements such as governance and assurance, monitoring & evaluation and communications. The focus now for the region is to further develop the shortlisted programme and project business cases as part of an evolving Portfolio Business Case, with the drawdown of the first tranche of funding anticipated for FY 2023/24.
