A CELEBRATORY round of grants is on offer for community groups across Queensland from the state's Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF).
State member for Jordan, Charis Mullen is inviting community groups in her electorate to submit their expressions of interest for a grant from this extra pool of funding, a total of $1.25 million.
There will be 10 x $100,000 grants and one $250,000 grant for the community organisation with the best application in round 100.
"I hear from community groups in the electorate how transformative the usual grants up to $35,000 through the Gambling Community Benefit Fund are for their organisation,” Ms Mullen said.
"It would be phenomenal if a not-for-profit group in my electorate received a $250,000 grant.
"Our local not-for-profit community organisations are the heart and soul of the Jordan Electorate.
"These grants are a one-off opportunity to purchase items, or significant capital works that would otherwise be out of reach.”
Ms Mullen said in addition to the ongoing quarterly grants that would be available, these special grants will help grass-roots organisations continue to deliver vital services and long-lasting impacts to benefit the future of the community.
Community groups have until midnight August 31, to submit their expression of interest applications.
Groups successful in the EOI process will then be invited to submit their application for up to $250,000.
Round 100 of GCBF is to be released in 2019.
