The SPFL have delivered the £1.8 million-plus due to clubs in the Championship and Leagues One and Two.
A total of 30 teams below the Premiership, including newly-crowned second tier champions Dundee United, will have the cash deposited in their bank accounts today.
The move comes after the resolution to end the season below the top flight was rubber-stamped by Dundee’s yes vote.
SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster confirmed: “Following confirmation on Wednesday night that the directors’ written resolution had passed with more than 80% support from clubs, SPFL staff have been working hard to ensure that these vital end-of-season payments are made available to clubs across the three divisions as soon as possible.
“The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Scottish football has been devastating, with no club left untouched or undamaged by the restrictions placed on our everyday life.
“This unprecedented situation has left clubs facing the stark reality of an extremely challenging financial landscape that could have seen a number of our clubs simply cease to exist.
“These funds will help bridge the gap and support clubs through this incredibly difficult period.”
Selected amounts: Dundee United £209,250; Dundee £148,800; Arbroath £93,000; Dunfermline £83,700; Raith Rovers £46,500; Montrose £31,620; East Fife £30,690; Forfar £26,970; Cowdenbeath £22,320; Brechin £16,740.
