Gambling Community Benefit Fund will support QLD ECEC community
Community organisations across Queensland will share in almost $11 million from the latest round of grants from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) which is going to 448 not-for-profit community groups in the latest round of the program.
Member for Rockhampton Barry O’Rourke shared the good news today and congratulated the 14 successful recipients from the Central Queensland region he presides over.
“These grants deliver projects and services that really benefit our local community,” Mr O’Rourke said.
“This valuable funding will be used for projects such as new equipment for the Tarumbal Kindergarten Association, a new water tank for the Rockhampton Saloon Car Club, and an upgraded sprinkler system for the Gracemere Bowls Club.
Round 112 of the funding is now open, with Queensland Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Shannon Fentiman reminding organisations that applications are open until 31 October and that they are now “just one round away from 2022’s round 113 – the super round.”
“Next year is an exciting year for the GCBF, with the first-time inclusion of a super round when grants of up to $100,000 will be up for grabs,” Ms Fentiman said.
“I can’t wait to see the fruits of the hard work of these community groups, with a little help from their GCBF grants, in the future.”
