Vibrant and Viable Places Tackling Poverty Fund

The Vibrant and Viable Places Tackling Poverty Fund has helped to regenerate some of the poorest areas in Wales.

The £7m fund was put into town centre related projects to tackle poverty in the most deprived areas in Wales.

The funding was for communities which were unsuccessful in bidding for a share of the Vibrant and Viable Places fund but who were in the top 10% of the Welsh Index for Multiple Deprivation.

It was allocated to the local authorities for use in specific areas - either a town or an area within a town or city.   

The following local authorities and local areas received funding:

Cardiff
