Community benefit funding programs

Through the Community Benefit Funds Unit (CBFU), the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation distributes revenue from gaming taxes to various not-for-profit community groups throughout Queensland.

The current Queensland community benefit funding programs are defined by geographical location; please ensure you apply for the fund in which your organisation is located.

You will find detailed information on which funds are currently accepting applications, eligible organisations, eligible items, the assessment process, grant agreements and other related information in the funding guidelines
