Dumfries and Galloway Council has made £200,000 of funding available to tackling poverty and inequalities in communities.
The Working Our Way Out of Poverty funding will be available to local groups and organisations with grants of up to £15,000 available now.
Organisations have the chance to increase their capacity by recruiting additional staff to support them to deliver projects to tackle the various forms of poverty within the region.
The funding can be used flexibly and to create posts which are either part time or full time, or continue existing posts where the funding has ended.

The closing date for applications is 8am on Monday March 15.
