A group that recycles baby goods for the needy, a network helping to prevent suicide, and a sewing charity making items for vulnerable people, are among the 600 plus organisations sharing in more than $13 million in funding from the latest round of a Palaszczuk Government grant fund.

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath said round 98 of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) saw worthy organisations from across Queensland set to benefit from the grants.

“I’m pleased to announce that 640 not-for-profit community groups will be sharing in more than $13,800,000 of grants from the most recent funding round,” Mrs D’Ath said.

“This funding enables community groups to deliver valuable resources and services for their community members, making a direct impact where it’s been identified as needed most.

“Communities across Queensland will be given a much-needed boost to support the development of their various projects and initiatives, as the GCBF enters its 25th year.”

She said the good news continued for Queensland community groups, with the opening of a new round of funding.

“Today, I’m also thrilled to announce that round 100 of the GCBF is now open,” Mrs D’Ath said.

“Whether you’ve applied before or are applying for the first time, we encourage not-for-profit community groups from all sectors to apply for a grant, with funding between $500 and $35,000 on offer.

“These grants could significantly contribute to the success of an eligible start-up, social enterprise, or a more established community organisation.

“If you’re currently looking for the financial support to enable you to make a more valuable contribution to the community, then now is the time to take action.”

The GCBF, which is part of the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR), is Queensland’s largest one-off grants program, distributing approximately $55 million annually to communities statewide.

Round 100 of the fund closes on 28 February, 2019.
