The Gambling Community Benefit Fund Grant Program provides funding of up to $35,000 for community groups to enhance their capacity to provide services, leisure activities and opportunities for Queensland communities.  The Department of Justice and Attorney-General has launched a new online portal for all future grant applications.

Round 94 of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund is now open and will close on 31 August 2017.

All Queensland Scout Formations wishing to apply for a Gambling Community Benefit Fund Grant must first contact the Grants and Project Officer at the Branch Support Office who will register the Formation with the online portal and provide guidance on completing the application process.

For Facility Improvements, please refer to the F14 Building Approval Process.  Formations must receive ‘Approval In Principle’ for the project prior to submitting a grant application.

Future closing dates each year (28 February / 31 May / 31 August / 30 November).
