2019 is a special year for the Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) – we are celebrating 25 years of providing grants to Queensland communities. And that means more funding opportunities for not-for-profit groups.

If you wish to apply for a grant of $500 to $35,000, please read the following information and apply online via the grants portal.

The Gambling Community Benefit Fund round 100 is now OPEN and closes at 11.59pm on 28 February 2019.

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.
