Families in Moray who have been facing financial struggles during the pandemic can now apply for a Covid spring hardship payment.
The £100 payment will be made to qualifying low-income families whose children receive free meals in schools or early learning and childcare settings.
Last month, the Scottish Government confirmed the payment as part of a package of measures worth £37.2 million to tackle poverty and inequality across the country.
More than 144,000 children and young people across the country benefited from the £100 Covid winter hardship payment, which was paid to eligible children in primary and secondary school.
The local authority will make payments directly into bank accounts by March 23.
