The UK coastline plays a vital role in the economy, history and culture of our country. The government is helping coastal communities flourish and strengthen their appeal as places to live, work and visit.
The Coastal Communities Fund Round 5 has £40 million available for spend from April 2019 to end of March 2021. It is now closed for new applications.
Funding goes to projects over £50,000 that will ultimately lead to regeneration and economic growth whilst directly or indirectly safeguarding and creating sustainable jobs.
Since 2012, the Coastal Communities Fund has invested £174 million into 295 projects UK-wide.
The Big Lottery Fund delivered rounds 1 to 4 on behalf of the government. Past projects can be found on the Big Lottery website.
