Queensland Country understands that not-for-profit groups play a large role in the development of a community. It can be difficult for these small organisations to self-fund activities and services. Queensland Country's Community Grants scheme aims to support with the purchase of tangible items which provide ongoing benefit to the community.
Our Community Grants program has provided for programs in the following funding categories:
- Arts, culture and heritage
- Sport and recreation (where the activity benefits the whole community)
- The environment
The Community Grants application process is currently under review and will not be available for application in 2016. The review aims to revisit the structure of the program to provide a fairer, more equitable process that better serves not-for-profit groups in our communities. The new Community Grants process will commence in 2017.
