The focus of CCF’s purpose is that “coastal communities will experience regeneration and economic growth through projects that directly or indirectly create sustainable jobs, and safeguard existing jobs”.
The CCF programme has been extended to the end of the 2016/17 financial year. Round three will combine the budgets for this period, in an effort to give an increased pot and encourage more ambitious use of CCF funds.
A total of £14.4 million in funds will be split in Scotland between the Highlands and Islands (£8.6million) and the Rest of Scotland (£5.8 million).
The deadline for applications is 30th April 2014.
Commenting Colin Beattie, MSP, for Musselburgh said:
“I am glad to see funding has been extended and applications are being accepted for this latest round of Coastal Communities Funding.
“I openly encourage any and all eligible groups in the Musselburgh area to submit an application for CCF and continue to promote sustainable economic growth and jobs.”
