Member for Kawana, Jarrod Bleijie MP, has welcomed the allocation of $55,618.18 for two local community groups under the State Government funding rounds.
More than $10 million has been provided across Queensland through the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.
Mr Bleijie said organisations within the Kawana electorate to receive funding in this round were:
Kawana Junior Rugby League Incorporated
CONSTRUCT SAFETY FENCE AND DUGOUTS $31,818.18
Sunshine Coast Dragon Boat Club Inc
PURCHASE BOATS AND TRAILER $23,800.00
“Our community groups will now be able to improve their facilities in our local area,” Mr Bleijie said.
“These grants let local organisations continue their important role in improving our community.
“These grant programs provide much needed funds for community groups to help them provide the facilities and activities which make our communities better places.
“They are designed for approved not-for-profit organisations and are not intended to replace existing sources of support for these organisations.”
Funding under these grant programs is allocated quarterly. The majority of Queensland not-for-profit community organisations are eligible to apply, either in their own right (if incorporated) or through a sponsor (if not incorporated).
