A small grants programme funded by Foundation Scotland from the Response, Recovery and Resilience fund will be allocated in Dumfries and Galloway.
The grants are for community organisations and the maximum amount available is £1000.
The money will target resources across Scotland, supporting projects which reflect the needs of individual local authority areas.
All grants will need to help community organisations respond to the challenges associated with accessing food, shelter or basic amenities.
The fund will be administered by Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway.
People across Scotland of all backgrounds that are faced with challenges associated with accessing food, shelter or basic amenities will benefit. This will mean that services are primarily provided to those living in the greatest poverty.
This group disproportionately includes disabled people, black people, Asian people and people from other ethnic minorities, carers and young families as well as older people. It also disproportionately affects some communities disadvantaged by their physical geography more than others.
