Delta Fund budgets
In September 2016, upon the official opening of Parliament, the Rutte II Cabinet presented its response to the inter-ministerial policy study on flexibility in infrastructural planning to the House of Representatives. This announced that the Delta Fund will annually be extended by one year. This intention has now been carried into effect, which means that in 2018, the Delta Fund will run up to 2031 inclusive. With this step, the Cabinet provides certitude regarding the manner in which the budgetary horizon of the Delta Fund will be extended. This secures the future budget for the implementation of the taskings set out in the Delta Programme.
