The Broadland Life Community Investment Funds Main Grants Programme 2010/11 is now open to application, and provides up to �20,000, or 25pc of the costs of a project - whichever is lower.
Applications need to be received on or before March 3 for the project to be considered for support.
Andrew Proctor, deputy leader of Broadland District Council, said: 'The council has provided an invaluable source of funding to many voluntary and community groups and I would urge any group with a project in mind, which will benefit their community, to get in touch as soon as possible to see how we can help.
'Although we may not be able to give a grant in every case, we can help in the process of finding suitable funding.'
