The Mid Sussex District Council Cabinet Grants Panel agreed to give a total of £111,193 to 16 successful applicants.
The charity Branch Line has been awarded £50,867 towards the cost of a new learning centre next to the miniature railway at Beech Hurst Gardens, Haywards Heath.
4Sight Vision Support has been granted £4,803 to support the valuable services they provide for visually impaired people in Mid Sussex, helping them to live more independently and gain confidence.
West Sussex Mediation Service (WSMS) has been granted £3,000 to help resolve local conflicts, from neighbour disputes to noise nuisance and property boundary issues.
