The Coastal Communities Fund encourages the economic development of UK coastal communities by giving them funding to create sustainable economic growth and jobs.

The Coastal Communities Fund (CCF), was established by the UK Treasury and grants were available to fund projects that boost the economic prospects of coastal communities across the UK. The fund is delivered by the Big Lottery Fund (external link) on behalf of UK Government and devolved administrations (Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland).

The fund is designed to support the economic development of coastal communities by promoting sustainable economic growth and jobs.

Consideration is taken of how plans for economic growth addresses the local needs and priorities, the amount of jobs that will be created and their long-term sustainability.

Applicants are expected to show their project will contribute to the CCF programme outcome.

The fund is now open.
