The Coastal Communities Fund is a competitive bid-led programme and all applications are assessed against agreed criteria and programme priorities. Projects that address issues of coastal erosion or flood risk management which threaten the development of the coastal economy are potentially eligible for help provided they can demonstrate they will deliver jobs and growth as part of an integrated regeneration initiative.

The administration of the Coastal Communities Fund in Scotland is the responsibility of the Scottish Government. My Hon Friend should contact them for further information about the next competitive bidding round for the Fund (Round 5) in Scotland for which funding will be available from April 2019.
