Editor Debbie Davies said: "We have to emphasies that the amounts being announced are offers and subject, to the groups confirming their acceptance of the offer."
"We've had an overwhelming response. Community groups, we know, often struggle to find funding, so we are delighted to be able to recognise so many of the groups doing such valuable work in our area."
The list will also be announced on Thursday and successful applicants will receive offer letters shortly thereafter.
Other applications in the pipeline - all of which arrived before last week's closing date- are now being studied and the remaining sums will be allocated shortly.
Award winners will be invited to a special presentation once all the funding has been announced.
