About the Gambling Community Benefit Fund
Not-for-profit groups operating in Queensland can apply for grants from $500 to $35,000 through the Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF). This fund is Queensland’s largest one-off grants program, distributing approximately $55 million per year.
The fund allocates grants to not-for-profit community groups, to enhance their capacity to provide services, leisure activities and opportunities for Queensland communities.
The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) Community Benefit Funds Unit (CBFU) administers the GCBF. We invite all eligible organisations to submit grant applications to the Gambling Community Benefit Fund through the GCBF online grants portal.
Applications are processed and assessed by the Community Benefit Funds Unit (CBFU) and considered by the Gambling Community Benefit Committee on a quarterly basis. Independently appointed by the Minister, the committee has the responsibility of making recommendations to the Minister on funding to eligible community groups.
