The Coastal Communities Fund (CCF) aims to encourage the economic development of UK coastal communities by awarding funding to create sustainable economic growth and jobs. Since the start of the CCF in 2012 we have awarded grants to 218 organisations across the UK to the value of £125 million, over three funding rounds. This funding is forecast to deliver over 12,000 jobs and help attract over £240 million of additional funds to coastal areas. The Big Lottery Fund is delivering the CCF on behalf of UK Government and the Devolved Administrations in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Round 4 of the CCF opened to applications in England on 22 May 2016.
