Queensland community groups to share in $14.6 million in grants funding

Published:

Almost 600 community groups will share in $14.6 million worth of Queensland Government grants through round 104 of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath said the popular program was a lifeline for 586 community and sporting groups, local councils and other organisations throughout Queensland.

The Attorney-General said grant recipients would enjoy flexible arrangements in acquitting the latest funding, as many deal with the effects of coronavirus.

“Some organisations have had to delay or extend the timeline for their events, purchases or projects as a result of COVID-19,” the Attorney-General said.

“The flexible arrangements we’ve put in place will ensure organisations get the maximum benefit from their funding.

“So many organisations rely on the funding this program delivers for things ranging from the purchase of vehicles or musical and sound equipment, the construction of sporting change rooms or to hold trail running events.

“They help keep Queenslanders connected in these challenging times and bring communities together

The GCBF grants are worth between $500 and $35,000 and applications are open to not-for-profit organisations. Over the past 25 years, GCBF has distributed more than $947 million to community groups helping Queenslanders.

The grants are merit based and funding is allocated by an independent panel.

Applications for round 106 of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund are now open and will close at 11.59pm on 31 August 2020.
