MINISTERS are pumping extra cash into Kirklees to boost deprived neighbourhoods.
A total of £12.7m will come the area's way, much of it over the next two years.
Cash will be used to tackle crime, anti-social behaviour, education, housing, health problems and unemployment.
Minister Phil Woolas said it was excellent news.
He said: "We are committed to improving the overall quality of life for people living in our most disadvantaged areas.
"We want them to share fully in a better society."
The cash is part of a £1.3bn national package.
A huge slice of the money will be channelled through the Neighbourhood Renewal Fund.
Cash from the fund was used last year to launch a bid to improve housing conditions in Kirklees.
The landlord accreditation scheme began in Birkby, Fartown and Crosland Moor.
A healthy living project in Newsome also won money.
Last month help was announced for a new mechanical roller at Edgerton Cricket Club, disabled toilets at Longwood Bowling Club and equipment for Emley Playschool.
