Five local community groups will be sharing nearly $100,000 from Round 105 of the State Government’s Gambling Community Benefit Fund.

The successful recipients were announced by Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath on Friday.

The Attorney-General said that like Round 104 – announced last month – grant recipients would enjoy flexible arrangements in acquitting the latest funding, as many were dealing with the effects of coronavirus.

“Some organisations have delayed or extended the timeline for their events, purchases or projects as a result of COVID-19, so we’ve put flexible arrangements in place to take this into account,” she said.

Round 105 has distributed $13.4 million to 522 groups across Queensland.

Applications for Round 107 are now open and will close on October 31.

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.
