South Norfolk Council has chosen the community groups across the district to give funding to.
The council's Community Action Fund met at the end of May to discuss how money should be shared between different groups.
The panel considered 28 applications with 14 of those successfully securing funding from a £50,000 funding pit.
South Norfolk Council's deputy leader Michel Edney said: 'There are some fantastic projects happening in South Norfolk and we were overwhelmed and delighted with the volume and variety of applications.
'This fund really makes a difference, supporting voluntary groups and communities and improving local people's quality of life.'
