An extra £20,000 has been allocated to support South Cambridgeshire community projects.
The boost comes after district councillors agreed the surplus grant funding for the next financial year, which will see £72,000 available for communities to bid for from April 1.
Groups and parish councils can bid for up to £1,500 from the community chest grant scheme to cover one-off costs relating to a project or activity, such as new equipment.
Councillor Ray Manning, leader of the district council, said: “The community chest grant scheme has been a huge success since it was launched and supported so many parish councils and community groups to do fantastic work in the district.
“I would urge people to plan their bids early as there will be lots of interest.”
