The RACQ Foundation has announced that community groups hit by the COVID-19 pandemic can now apply for grants of up to $20,000.
Spokesperson Renee Smith said RACQ Foundation funding had historically only been issued to community groups affected by natural disasters but the COVID-19 crisis had caused the Foundation to make a special exemption.
“It’s been truly devastating to see the impact COVID-19 has had on communities and charities across our State,” Ms Smith said.
“So, we’re really pleased to be able to extend our eligibility to community organisations or charities that are either assisting in the recovery process or whose operations have been significantly impacted by this pandemic. Eligible groups can now apply for up to $20,000 in funding, which we’re hoping will help them and their communities recover.
“Whether you’re a local community group that has lost other forms of sponsorship, advertising revenue or patronage due to COVID-19, or an organisation involved in reconnecting older Queenslanders with their community, we encourage you to apply.”
