Coastal Communities Fund

The Coastal Communities Fund (CCF) is a UK-wide programme funded by the UK Government through the allocation of funding equivalent to 50% per cent of the revenues from the Crown Estate’s marine activities. The CCF aims to encourage the economic development of UK coastal communities by awarding funding to create sustainable economic growth and jobs.

The Big Lottery Fund is delivering the CCF on behalf of the UK Government and the Devolved Administrations.

The Coastal Communities Fund is now closed to applications.

Please see the CCF website for details of the Round 3 funding decisions announced in January 2015. Round 3 included CCF funding for 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17. There are no plans at present for future rounds.
