The Coastal Communities Fund is a competitive bid-led UK-wide programme which does not pre-allocate a specific proportion of funds for any category of project. There are no plans to change this.

In the first four rounds of the Coastal Communities Fund a total of 18 grants worth £9.73 million were awarded to fisheries related projects across the UK. These accounted for approximately 6 per cent of the Fund's total allocated expenditure.

Each application is considered on its individual merits against the Fund’s main outcome to support growth and jobs in coastal communities.
