$30M up for grabs in community grants

By Sonia Isaacs

HINTERLAND community groups and not-for-profit organisations are encouraged to jump on board the Gambling Community Benefit Fund’s (GCBF) massive $30 million super round.
2024 marks the 30th anniversary of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund, and local not-for-profit clubs and organisations can apply for a slice of this special edition mega round offering the largest pool of funding available since the Disaster Recovery Round in 2022.
Super-sized grants of up to $100,000 are available for community groups and not-for profit associations. While the latest GCBF round is not a standalone Disaster Recovery Round, community groups impacted by extreme weather over the summer period are encouraged to apply. Over the grants program’s 30-year history, nearly 70,000 community organisations across Queensland have benefited in a share of more than $1.173 billion, making the GCBF the state’s largest one-off grants program.
The Super Round is open now until April 30. www.justice.qld.gov.au/initiatives/community-grants
