Coastal Communities Fund

The Coastal Communities Fund (CCF) aims to support the economic development of coastal communities by promoting sustainable economic growth and jobs, so that people are better able to respond to the changing economic needs and opportunities of their area.

In 2012 the Government introduced the Coastal Communities Fund (CCF) to support economic development projects in coastal areas across the UK.

CCF Round Five in Northern Ireland will have around £900k available for spend from 1 April 2019 to end 31 December 2021. The Fund will be administered and managed by DAERA Fisheries Grants Unit.

Funding awards between £50,000 and £100,000 are available for a wide range of applicant organisations and projects which benefit coastal communities.
