$1.67 million in the latest round of funding.for not-for-profit groups “On the Gold Coast




The Palaszczuk Government has announced $14 million of funding for almost 700 community organisations across Queensland, including about 80 Gold Coast groups, in the latest round of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF).
Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath said the 695 successful applicants in Round 91 of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund included schools, sports clubs, community organisations, emergency services organisations and health and support centres.
“This funding ensures these vital groups can purchase equipment and complete upgrades so they can continue providing valuable services to their local communities,” Mrs D’Ath said.
“On the Gold Coast, not-for-profit groups will share in $1.67 million in the latest round of funding.
“Broadbeach Surf Life Saving Club will receive $20,000 to construct a storage facility, Southport Bowls Club Inc will receive $27,273 to install lighting on the bowling green, and Gold Coast North Youth Centre Inc will receive $15,900 to install solar and air conditioning.”
The Gambling Community Benefit Fund is administered by the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation and collects revenue generated by gambling and puts it back into the community.
“The fund is Queensland’s largest one-off grants program and distributes about $53 million a year to communities across Queensland,” Mrs D’Ath said.
“Queensland’s not-for-profit groups are the backbone of our communities and the Palaszczuk Government is committed to ensuring they get the vital funds they need to continue providing services and assisting their local areas.”
Last month Mrs D’Ath announced the GCBF would give disaster recovery projects priority over the next 12 months, to provide extra help to not-for-profit organisations in areas affected by Cyclone Debbie.
“But I must stress this will not exclude organisations from non-affected regions from applying for grants,” Mrs D’Ath said.
“Applications right across the state are always considered on their merits.”
The disaster recovery projects will be prioritised in Round 92, which closed in February, and Rounds 93, 94 and 95.
Round 93 is currently open and will close on May 31.
