Local charities, schools and good causes in East Kilbride could receive a share of £5000.
Cala Homes Community Bursary aims to provide support for a wide range of organisations and projects.
And last year, 118 good causes across the country received a share of more than £100,000, including East Kilbride’s Men Shed.
Chairman Derek Miller said: “Grant assistance is crucial to enable organisations like us to survive the early days to become better established, so we are incredibly grateful to Cala.
“We intend to improve our members’ physical and emotional health in addition to their well-being by coming together, working on projects of their choosing and building relationships with each other.”
The scheme is part of a wider West of Scotland community bursary initiative which offers £15,000 to local charities and organisations in Lanarkshire, Glasgow and Renfrewshire.
Jim McIntyre, managing director for Cala Homes (West) said: “Seven charities across Lanarkshire benefitted from the community bursary scheme last year, with donations, made for projects ranging from Cumbernauld and Kilsyth Care to Make a House a Home in East Kilbride. We’re looking forward to hearing from more local charities this year about the great work they do and how Cala can get involved.”
