Eleven South Burnett community groups will share $251,106 grants from the latest round of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.
Successful Round 99 grant recipients were announced on Friday.
The successful applicants are:
“This funding enables community groups to deliver community projects that might otherwise be out of reach without the assistance of the government’s Gambling Community Benefit Fund,” Mrs D’Ath said.
“It’s a $13.7 million acknowledgement of the vital role of these organisations play in Queensland communities.”
Mrs D’Ath said Round 101 of the GCBF was now open.
“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,” she said.
“These grants could significantly contribute to the success of an eligible start-up, social enterprise, or a more established community organisation.”
The GCBF, which is part of the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation, is Queensland’s largest one-off grants program, distributing approximately $55 million annually to communities statewide.
Round 101 closes on May 31.
