Regional clubs urged to apply for valuable funding

ROUND 93 of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund is open. It closes at midnight on May 31.

This GCBF is an amalgamation of several grants including the Jupiter's Casino Community Benefit Fund. Applicants can apply for funding from $500 through to $35,000.

Clubs wishing to put an application in for a project that involves the construction or alteration of a building/structure on Council land needs to discuss this in the first instance with their Sport and Recreation officer. They can help the club obtain the appropriate approvals.

More information can be found at www.justice.qld.
