Vibrant and Viable Places
Local authorities will share more than £100m for regeneration schemes from 2014 to 2017.
The fund will be invested in town centres, coastal communities and Communities First areas.
It was allocated through a two stage application process which was open to all local authorities in Wales.
Vibrant and Viable Places is the result of a review of approaches to regeneration in Wales and further afield and extensive consultation with partners.
It has the backing of the whole Cabinet and promotes a well-evidenced approach combining support for people and places. It also encourages partnership working with the public, private and third sectors.
The framework seeks to get the best out of every pound spent by the Welsh Government in terms of mainstream funding like health and education.
An additional £7m will go to town centre related projects that tackle poverty. This fund has been ring fenced for projects in the top 10 per cent most deprived areas in Wales.
A further £1m has been allocated to the Town Centre Partnership Fund which will help boost 20 town centres across Wales.
