The Healthy Together grant of £530,000 is being shared with 42 groups throughout Gloucestershire to tackle a range of health-related issues.
Garden makeovers, home visiting schemes for the elderly, music therapy for dementia sufferers, workshops for young people to help them deal with stress and first aid training are just some of the initiatives being supported with the money.
Voluntary and community groups, registered charities, community companies, parish and town councils, schools, pre-schools and faith groups put in bids for a portion of the funds for their own projects.
In total 99 applications were made for the funding which was pooled by taking £10,000 from each electoral division.
The priorities for each area were identified by local county councillors and the final awards agreed by panel of members in each district.
Successful groups in Gloucester included the Friendship Café on Alfred Street, White City's "Be Healthy, Active, Fit and Happy" project and The Barton and Tredworth Link Project.
Cheltenham projects have also been boosted by the funding, including Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust's Garden Mentors initiative, the Independence Trust's Community Mentor Connection Project and Mindsong 'Music Therapy' group.
