Community groups receive a major boost
MEMBER for Glass House Andrew Powell is thrilled that Round 99 of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund has brought a total of $151,292.14 in grants to the Glass House electorate, and more to communities further afield which service the electorate.
The fund provides one-off grants to Queensland not-for-profit community organisations with revenue sourced from gaming taxes and distributes about
$53 million per year to Queensland communities.
“These grants provide money to community organisations who often struggle to raise enough funds to maintain or upgrade their premises through traditional fundraising. The grants also enable them to provide further resources or expand their services to the community,” Mr Powell said.
“I would like to congratulate each of these groups on their success in this round and I encourage organisations within Glass House to apply for funding in the next round.”
Information on how to apply for a GCBF grant is available at justice.qld.gov. au/grants or by phoning 1800 633 619.
