Money up for grabs for community groups
LOCAL community groups can now apply for grants for a range of project as part of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund program.
A new funding round is now open that allows groups to attract up to $35,000 for projects such as new vehicles, machinery, renovations, training and other equipment.
The community benefit fund is Queensland’s largest community grants program allocating around $60 million a year in grants.
Whether it is for lighting sports fields, new IT equipment, training for volunteers or for organising a community event, the breadth of items and events that can be funded is extensive.
Groups in regional and remote areas, those that support victims of domestic and family violence as well as those that help culturally and linguistically people are particularly encouraged to apply.
To apply by 31 August, go to www. https://www.justice.qld.gov.au/initiatives/community-grants
