Since the initiative was launched in 2017, more than £500,000 has been awarded to good causes enabling key projects to come to life in local areas.
Previous winners have included Dundee’s Eighteen and Under, Home-Start Kincardine and Highland Hospice.
Applications should be made via the Scotmid.Co-op by the deadline.
Chief executive John Brodie said: “Over the past 160 years, our core purpose is to serve our local communities and improve people’s everyday lives and Community Connect helps not only bring communities together but brings worthwhile projects to life.”
