EAST YORKS: Grants worth a total of £200,000 are being made available to town and parish councils across the region.
The money has been allocated by East Riding Council as part of its new budget for the coming financial year.
Council leader Councillor Stephen Parnaby said the funding would help grassroots projects get off the ground.
Some of the cash is expected to be used to top up previous grant awards.

Schemes funded by the cash in the past two years have included the purchase of tractors and extra supplies of salt and grit to deal with the worst of the winter weather.
Cllr Parnaby said: "These grants have been very popular.
"Given the problems we have faced again this winter, I believe it would be both prudent and sensible to continue making grants available.
"I must emphasise that these are not only for winter initiatives and parish councils can bid for grants to enhance and improve all their services in their areas, subject to the criteria the council has previously agreed."
EAST YORKS: A comment piece on public school tax breaks has become Lord Prescott's most talked about column to date.
The former Hull East MP launched a new column in The Mirror a few weeks ago.
But his piece about public schools being classed as charities, therefore entitling them to tax relief, has struck a chord with his Twitter followers.
The column says every taxpayer pays about £3.30 a year to effectively "sponsor" a public schoolboy.
The column has been retweeted by his followers, with Lord Prescott claiming it "is my most tweeted about column so far".
