Since 2012, the Coastal Communities Fund has awarded grants to 311 projects worth over £180 million to coastal areas in the UK to support economic growth and jobs. This funding is helping to create or safeguard over 18,000 UK jobs and attract over £316 million of public/ private sector co-finance.

The administration of the Coastal Communities Fund in Scotland is a devolved matter. The Scottish Government is currently reviewing the Coastal Communities Fund. My Hon Friend should contact Scottish Ministers for further information.
