Groups in parts of Keighley have until January 3 to apply for cash from the latest round of Community First funding.
Organisations across Keighley West ward can bid for cash from the £67,000 fund for a range of community projects and activities.
A panel of local people will look at applications from neighbourhoods including Braithwaite, Exley Head, Fell Lane, Laycock and Bracken Bank.
Applicants will have to attend a panel meeting to outline their project and answer questions.

Recent grants paid for outdoor activities for Brownies, skills training in Braithwaite and homework and work clubs in Bracken Bank.
