Coastal Communities Fund: Round 4

Coastal Communities Fund: Round 4

The Coastal Communities Fund (CCF) supports the development of coastal locations by promoting sustainable economic growth and jobs, enabling local people to respond to the changing needs and opportunities in their area. The CCF supports a wide range of projects, including those that benefit charities, the environment, education and health. Round four is now open in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. In Scotland, Round four will have around £3.4 million; split between the Highlands and Islands (£1.92 million) and the Rest of Scotland (£1.44 million). Funding awards in excess of £50,000 are available. There is no upper limit (for Scotland or Northern Ireland); however, bids for a large proportion of the funding available will not be successful. Consideration will be taken of how plans for economic growth address local needs and priorities, the number of jobs that will be created and their long term sustainability. Funding is provided for both capital and revenue costs.Deadline: stage one applications 17th August 2016,  https://www.biglotteryfund.org.uk/ccf
