Bundaberg community groups urged to apply for grants

MEMBER for Bundaberg Leanne Donaldson is encouraging community groups across Bundaberg to apply for the final round of Gambling Community Benefit Fund grants.

Ms Donaldson said the GCBF was the state's largest grant program and would return almost $53 million of gaming revenue to Queensland communities this year.

"We are thrilled to have about $13 million to share across Queensland communities in round 87. Eligible organisations can submit applications for up to $35 000," Ms Donaldson said.

"To be eligible an organisation must have not-for-profit objectives and be community based. They must also have registered their organisation with the GCBF team to confirm they are a legal entity or sponsored organisation. Registration can be completed online.

"Groups have until midnight on 30 November 2015 to submit their application."

Ms Donaldson said the latest GCBF guideline had all the information groups needed to submit a successful application.

"The committee usually focuses on tangible items which can benefit an organisation long term, such as facility upgrades and equipment," she said.

"Priority will also be given to those who have not received funding for two years or have been impacted by natural disaster."
