Coastal Communities Fund – opportunities for investment in the ICT sector across Welsh coastal areas

The Coastal Communities Fund Wales invests around £4million of non-repayable grants, per year, to businesses throughout Wales’ coastal settlements. The aim of this investment is to see businesses create or sustain jobs through income generating activities which will see these communities flourish.
We’ve been running since 2012 and each year have tried to make ourselves known to more and more business so they can come to us for grants to see their business ideas and potential be fulfilled. This year we’re actively trying to engage with businesses in the ICT sector.
The fifth year of Coastal Communities Fund went live on Friday 5th January. Applicants can find out all about the Fund and download forms or supplementary information from our website (see link below). Organisations and businesses have until 12th March to submit proposals:
