Farmers across Scotland will be able to apply for a grant to help repair man-made flood banks on their land.
The fund is capped at £20,000 per business, from the £1 million set aside by the Agricultural Floodbank Repair Grant Scheme. The grant was confirmed by Rural Affairs Secretary, Richard Lochhead and will be ran in partnership with NFU Scotland.
Nine local authorities are part of the scheme, including Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders.
Applications for the Agricultural Floodbank Repair Grant Scheme are available online.
