The latest round of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund will tip $457,800 in State Government grants into the region’s communities.

The grants were announced by Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath on Tuesday.

More than 650 community groups across Queensland will benefit from the $14.7 million Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) Round 103.

In the South Burnett, recipients include the Blackbutt Tennis Club, which plans to carry out further upgrades to its courts in Hart Street, Blackbutt; and Moffatdale State School P&C, which plans to erect an electronic sign and upgrade their buildings.

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 $902 million to community groups in Queensland.

Applications for the next round will close on April 30.
