Following legislation from the Westminster government's 2015 Autumn statement, VAT on sanitary wear is now used to provide grants for women's health support and economic development charities.
There are currently grants of £1 million pounds each available to charities that support women's mental health and wellbeing, as well as organisations that tackle violence against women and girls.
Tracey Crouch, the minister for civil society said: "The tampon tax fund is already making a real difference to the lives of women and girls across the country. We are ensuring that the money generated from sanitary products continues to support good causes and address the serious issues that women of all ages face."
She also specifically welcomed applications for projects that support women and girls "across multiple regions" of the UK.
The tax has been criticised as it is based on tampons and sanitary towels being classed as 'luxury items', rather than necessary to menstruating women.
The recipients of funding from the Tampon Tax were also called into question in October when an anti-abortion charity received £250,000 from the government.
Period poverty has also been highlighted world world as lack of sanitary products can prevent school attendance and negatively impact girls education.
Applications are open until midnight on Sunday 28 January for projects delivered over either one or two years.
