A commemorative round of grants for 11 special projects across Queensland has been announced, to celebrate 25 years of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF)
“The commemorative grants funding round provides total funds of up to $1.25 million, and will be distributed to 11 not-for-profit groups across Queensland.
“For nearly 25 years the GCBF has been supporting local community groups and support services by providing one off grants to help them, help our community,” said Chris Whiting.
There will be 10 grants of $100,000 and 1 grant of $250,000, with applications being accepted for projects with a minimum value of $35,000.
“The commemorative round will be done in two stages, with the first round being an Expression of Interest, and the second where shortlisted applicants will be invited to proceed further.
“The Expression of Interest stage closes at 11:59pm on 31 August, so I encourage all eligible local groups to get in quick,” said Chris Whiting.
Groups eligible to apply must be a Queensland community based not-for-profit group. Further details can be found at:
