Fifteen areas are set to share £36.8m of government funding in the second round of the neighbourhood management pathfinder programme.
The ODPM will provide each with £200,000 to recruit staff and develop their plans, which if approved will unlock an average of £350,000 a year for seven years.
Pathfinders will set up partnerships between residents and local organisations to seek ways to tackle a wide range of problems, including anti-social behaviour.
The ODPM said the second round would concentrate on communities affected by low demand for housing, pockets of deprivation in otherwise prosperous areas, and deprived parts of the countryside.
