This represents a 12.5% increase in funding over previous years.
Announcing the fifth round of the ethnic minority grant scheme, Lord James said:
'Ethnic minority groups form a small but significant element of Scottish society and bring a diversity to our way of life in a way which the government and the wider community continue to value.
'This is on top of the four organisations already receiving support.
'The projects cover a wide range of ethnic minority groups and range from support for carers and for young victims of racial harassment to funding for an exhibition to celebrate Indian independence.'
