Mayor Michael Tucker said supporting the community was one of the most important things council did.
"Forward thinking and pro-active community groups like the ones we have supported this year through our community grant process are so important as they can deliver on grass roots projects," he said.
"These community groups are at the very for-front of knowing what their community needs and we look forward to seeing all their projects coming to fruition over the next 12 months."
Grants were given out for projects ranging from bench seating in St Helens Memorial Park to a program to help veterans who suffer post traumatic stress disorder.
